On Thursday 4 March the CLP Selection Committee hosted an online meeting for our members in the St Ives East and Carbis Bay Division to select a candidate for this year’s Cornwall Council Election.
We only had the one candidate, Steve Hynes.
We had a great turn out of division members and Steve spoke eloquently of the need for Labour to correct the false narrative the Lib Dems peddle on them being the “official opposition” and the only alternative to Conservatives and Independents.
He was selected, unanimously to stand for election in May.
The virtual meeting couldn’t have happened without the hard work of Chair Nicole Broadhurst and the good-natured forbearance of the committee (Pat Hammond, Aaron Broadhurst and Scott Hamilton), Felicity Owen from the Local Campaign Forum, the candidate and members who attended.
