Following an extensive selection process across the party the Maidstone Labour Party is pleased to announce its candidates to fight the Maidstone Borough Council Elections and Kent County Council Elections.
There will be an opportunity for all residents in the borough to Vote Labour in what are the biggest local elections in years. In addition to our local candidates Labour is standing for the Police and Crime Commissioner as well.
Labour is targeting to win 3 seats on Maidstone Council and 3 seats on Kent Council as follows:
Maidstone Borough Council Target Seats
- Fant: Patrick Coates
- Park Wood: Dan Wilkinson
- Shepway South: Maureen Cleator
Kent County Council Target Seats
- Maidstone Central (2 seat division): Patrick Coates and Paul Harper
- Maidstone South East: Dan Wilkinson
We believe that we are in a good position to win our Maidstone Target Seats which would increase the size of the Labour group from the current 4 to 6 and would mean that Labour will continue to hold the balance of power on Maidstone Council.
