Labour chooses experienced community activist as election candidate

Local Labour party members met last weekend to choose their candidate for the upcoming byelection, Ruth Ling.

Ruth is an experienced community activist to be the Labour candidate in Tulse Hill. She brings 16 years of knowledge of how Lambeth council works, having been a councillor in a ward just up the road.

The election will be held on Thursday, July 1st following the resignation of Toren Smith.

Ruth said: "I'm delighted to have been chosen by local party activists as the candidate. From now until election day I will be out every day talking to local residents in Tulse Hill. I want to see local services such as shools, housing and police protected for residents from the savage cuts that the Lib Dem-Tory government is planning."
