How can we build Labour in Teignmouth?
We need Labour Councillors in Teignmouth, so that we get a balanced view on the District Council, and decisions are influenced by a Labour point of view.
How can you help us build Labour at the grass roots in Teignmouth?
You will have seen members of the Labour Party in Teignmouth, perhaps on Bank Street - talking to Teignmouth people about the Labour Party, canvassing from door to door, asking people about their concerns, and about their ideas for the Labour Party locally and nationally. You may have seen that in the General Election, our candidate, James Osborne, came second after the Conservatives, defeating the Liberal Democrats and proving that we are the party in opposition now, and that you can vote Labour rather than some sort of tactical vote, at last! You may have noticed that our Teignmouth town Council Candidate, Lilian Chasteau, had more than doubled her share in votes in the area, both at town and County Levels.
You will find Labour members getting involved with community initiatives, supporting local people over their issues, such as difficulty with benefits, homelessness, challenges with building developments which are inappropriate or damaging to residents. You might find us at council meetings, ensuring we are up to date with local issues.
SO if you are passionate to see a fairer society, a government that cares about everyone, not just the rich, that looks to support people rather than judge them, join the Labour Party, and come along to a meeting. If you have never done this - try us out, we are friendly and we listen to peoples views and concerns. We debate, we argue, we have speakers to inform us on many different subjects. Sometimes we get together, just to share a social occasion with like minded people. Join us. Come along and help us to build Labour locally.
