Stephen’s campaign for the local election in Charles Dickens ward has been boosted today with the endorsement of a political heavyweight, Lord Peter Hain former Cabinet Minister and Labour MP for Neath.
“Stephen is a long standing community activist who cares about Portsmouth and the issues residents face.
His professional background in the public and voluntary sectors puts him on a strong footing to be an excellent representative for residents across Charles Dickens ward.
I hope you’ll give him your support this May”.
A political activist and campaigner for over 50 years, Peter Hain was until recently one of the most experienced politicians in the House of Commons.
He served the country across a number of Cabinet roles and as Secretary of State for Northern Ireland negotiated the historic peace settlement establishing devolved government for the area.
“I’m absolutely delighted with this news. Residents in Charles Dickens ward need strong representation on the council, someone who will get things done and make Portsmouth better.
It is fantastic to have Peter’s experience and support behind our campaign”.
