The Labour Group on Southend Council currently consists of foutreen councillors who represent Blenheim Park, Kursaal, Milton, St. Laurence, Victoria and Westborough wards.
Their job is to oversee the work of the council and to represent and act as advocates for the people of the wards they represent. They are also involved with local groups and residents’ associations, attend community events and hold regular advice surgeries.
Following the local elections on 2nd May, no one party has overall control of Southend Council. However, Labour is the largest opposition party and is seeking to work constructively to defend, protect and improve public services across the town.
Advice surgeries are held on the first and third Saturday of each month from 10am-12noon at the Labour Party office, 268 Sutton Road, Southend on Sea, SS2 5ET. There are additional ‘street surgeries’ held locally in wards: In Kursaal by our Councillors Matt Dent, Maffie Kelly and Helen McDonald (call Matt on 07779 413772 for details of the next one) and in Milton by our Councillors Stephen George, Kay Mitchell and Cheryl Nevin (call Cheryl on 07790 595232 for details). Our Blenheim Park Ward Councillor Laurie Burton holds drop in advice surgeries on the fourth Friday of each month, 5pm at Westcliff High School for Boys and on the second Saturday of each month, 9am at Kent Elms Library.
