Local Elections 2021
Supporting our Communities.
We’re proud that our party is made up of local people who care about our town. We support community facilities like Friendship House when we see them threatened by the Conservatives and we come together to say no to overnight closures at the QE2 Hospital in Welwyn Garden City. Our members lead community support groups, serve in foodbanks, and work in the fantastic NHS vaccination programme.

Vote Labour on Thursday 6 May 2021
This election if your chance to choose a positive plan for Welwyn Hatfield’s future.
Labour will keep your council tax low while protecting key services, much like the Labour-led Council have done in Stevenage.
We’ll stand up for Health and Care workers. Labour Councillors voted for a proper pay increase for those who have been there for us during the pandemic while the Conservatives were proposing NHS pay cuts. Only Labour will bring in free parking for nurses and health workers while fighting cuts at the local QE2 Urgent Care Centre.
Labour is fighting to save vital community services like “Friendship House” in Hatfield as the Conservatives block it from being used while they work out how to pocket as much money and profit from the site as possible.
For too long greed, waste and dodgy deals have come before local people and local needs.
You can stop this right now. Vote Labour and help us put you first.
*Labour Stevenage Band D Council Tax = £1904.20
Conservative Welwyn Hatfield Band D Council Tax = £1970.47

"I am committed to continue working on opposing inappropriate development in our area, and ensuring that the council provides value for money on the council tax we all pay." James Broach, Labour Candidate – Borough Council
Labour Candidate – Borough Council
I’ve lived in Hatfield for nearly all my adult life, and also currently work in the town.
I have been a Councillor in Hatfield since 2015. In that time, I have worked on a number of issues, such as stopping the conversion of family homes and commercial spaces into HMOs/flats and the appalling performance of private waste contractors.
Going forward I am committed to continue working on opposing inappropriate development in our area, and ensuring that the council provides value for money on the council tax we all pay.
"My faith is in our ability to make this community a strong and resilient one that flourishes in being there for each other." Moyna Aicken, Labour Candidate – County Council
Labour Candidate – County Council
Our home has been in Lockley Crescent since 2009 and I believe in putting my efforts into the community I live in.
I’m rooted in this community and have vast amounts of life and management experience to put behind my work. I’m a qualified Life Coach and Trainer and regularly invest my time and expertise in helping people deal with day to day issues as well as extreme difficulties.
To me, we are all equal as human beings and everyone deserves a chance.
I’ve lived and worked in many countries and recognise and celebrate diverse cultures – a great ongoing education for me. Having spent some time at the Hatfield Citizens Advice Bureau I’m aware of some of the needs of this community but there is nothing better than to be amongst our town’s people at various events and to speak with you directly.
My faith is in our ability to make this community a strong and resilient one that flourishes in being there for each other. The Labour Party and I will be there for you.
Vote for me on May 6th, 2021!
"We need a safe, secure Hertfordshire, online, at home, and in our streets. We need to protect our businesses and our countryside too." Philip Ross, Labour Candidate for Hertfordshire Police and Crime Commissioner
Labour Candidate for Hertfordshire Police and Crime Commissioner
My goal is to ensure that we are all safe online, in our homes, and on the streets. Our key priority is to focus on anti-social behaviour. I am going to appoint a new anti-social behaviour commissioner who will ensure that councils, the police, and other groups such as housing landlords must work together to solve complaints. We will be focusing on county-line drug gangs that target school-age children. We will introduce an intelligence-led policing model so that we can prevent and detect crime and go back to effective community and neighbourhood policing.
Remember, have your say on the local elections.
Vote Labour on Thursday 6 May!
