How Cornwall Council is run is soon to change.
In May there will be elections for Cornwall Council itself and all the Town and Parish Councils in our area.
This is our chance to make that change a positive one for all of us.
We need you now.
There are so many things you can do to make a difference.
This campaign is going to be different – and as tough as any we have fought – there are many things we cannot do – we’re going to have to be imaginative and improvise.
There will be no doorstepping and personal canvassing but we can stil engage with our neighbours, families and friends – let’s use our social networks like we’ve never used them before.
Vote Early – get a postal vote.
Talk to your family and friends
- get them to register for a postal vote themselves – and stay safe
- encourage them to vote because it does make a difference
- persuade them to vote Labour because our stories, our lives, our personal experiences need to be listened to
- we are the second party in Cornwall and our voice needs to be heard – we can make a difference.

Being a councillor can be a challenge but you can make a difference … for the better.
At any level – Cornwall, Town or Parish – make sure that ordinary people’s voices are heard on planning, spending, services and development, youth provision and social care. This is our home … and it’s up to us how it is run.
