The Labour Party in Staffordshire Moorlands
About the Labour Party – Members of the Labour Party hold in common the following values:
• Social justice;
• Strong communities;
• Reward for hard work;
• Decency; and
• Rights matched by responsibilities
Labour in the Moorlands – In the Staffordshire Moorlands the Labour party is committed to upholding these values so that all residents in our towns and villages have equal opportunity to live and work in safe and prosperous communities.
Tell us What You Think – Achieving this means we need to bring people together to develop the ideas that will make the Moorlands a place where people have access to good quality public services, to employment that pays a livable wage, to a high quality environment and where communities and individuals are free of crime and the fear of crime.

TIME TO MAKE OUR POLL LEAD COUNT
With Labour’s lead in the latest opinion poll at 15%, it’s exactly the right time to make sure or local community knows we are active and making our presence felt. A very friendly welcome surely awaits anyone happy to door-knock.
Labour’s Joy Garner is relying on all of us to make sure voters know that the Staffordshire Police Commissioner election on November 15th is crucial for the future of good quality local policing.
County candidates have been chosen in Leek – Charlotte Atkins in Leek South and Margaret Lovatt in Leek Rural. Party members in Biddulph and Moorlands South will be choosing their own county candidates soon. County seats will be contested in May 2013.
Campaigning activity for both elections will be in full gear by the end of this month and if you have any time to spare, we can find a job to suit exactly the time you have available and exactly what you are prepared to do.
Time to make your opinion count !
