Rotherhithe & Surrey Docks Labour Party

Thursday 8 March meeting:
Stephanie Elsy, Leader of Southwark Council

Stephanie Elsy Leader of Southwark Council

We've landed another big name guest to come to our next Branch Meeting on Thursday March 8th - Stephanie Elsy, Labour Leader of Southwark Council.

Continuing in our now well established tradition, Stephanie's visit will be the latest of a range of guests who've already come to Rotherhithe and Surrey Docks Branch this year - our Greater London Assembly representative Val Shawcross, our very own Bermondsey councillor and Southwark Council Cabinet Leader of Regeneration, Steve Lancashire and our Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for the General Election, Kingsley Abrams.

Stephanie knows only too well the lack of representation for Labour supporters in Rotherhithe. She hears plenty of the constant negative swiping and moans and groans of the LibDems sitting in the Council Chamber. So take this opportunity - let's beef up our profile right now and get Stephanie involved in the issues dear to us in Rotherhithe so we can win some Council seats at the next local elections in May 2002. Think about it - it's not that far off.

Would you consider standing for Labour for the Council and would you like to know what it's all about? Do you have a burning issue you'd like to discuss with the Council Leader? Well, you've got no excuses - come to the March 8th Branch Meeting and take things to the top.

Stephanie knows Rotherhithe well. She has visited our Branch each year since 1999 when chosen as Chair of Education at the Town Hall, so who better to come and listen to over the vexed question of a new secondary school for Rotherhithe.

We want to see as many members as possible at our meetings which is why we invite civic leaders like Stephanie to come and see us. So make a date in your Diary now - that's 8pm, Trinity Halls, Bryan Road, on Thursday 8th March.

See you there!
