Four new faces join the Hillingdon Labour Group after the local elections that took place last week, including two young Labour members.
Kerri Prince won one of the three Barnhill seats last week, becoming one of the youngest Councillors in the London Borough of Hillingdon aged 25. She is joined by fellow Young Labour member and NUS Vice President Ali Milani who successfully fought a tightly contested seat in the Heathrow Villages ward, joining two sitting Labour Councillors.
Scott Farley joins the Botwell team after being selected for the seat by Labour Party members earlier this year, and Stuart Mathers took the third West Drayton seat from the Conservatives last week, giving the ward three Labour Councillors.
The Labour Group also welcomes back former Councillor Lindsay Bliss who now represents Yeading ward.
Speaking about the new additions to the Labour Group, Leader Peter Curling said:
“I am thrilled that we have four new energetic Councillors, two of them from the Young Labour section of the
party. They all have a proven commitment to Labour values and they bring unique experiences and
perspectives to contribute to a formidable Labour group holding this Conservative administration to account.
“I am also pleased to welcome back Councillor Lindsay Bliss. We have a fantastic group ready to scrutinise
the local Conservatives and be a voice for all residents, not just those in the north of the Borough where the
Conservatives hold seats.”
