Island Labour Announces Parliamentary Candidates As Quigley Vows To 'Take Fight' To Bob Seely

Island Labour has announced the selection of their Parliamentary Candidates for the much anticipated General Election, which will see the island divided into two constituencies.

Cllr Emily Brothers is the candidate for Isle of Wight East, whilst Cllr Richard Quigley is the candidate for Isle of Wight West.

Emily said:

"Representing Labour is a privilege and exciting opportunity to secure change for Isle of Wight East.

"I look forward to engaging with local people, community organisations and business in the campaign ahead.

“Every vote counts, so I’ll be working hard to reach out to gain the trust of residents in Isle of Wight East. It is a great place to live, so I want it to thrive by getting our future back."

Richard Quigley said:

"I'm extremely pleased and excited to be representing the Labour party at the next general election in Isle of Wight West. After 14 years of what can only be described as a malevolent Conservative government.

"What I hear over and over again is it's time for change and this is the best chance we have ever had to elect a Labour MP for the Isle of Wight that will hopefully be part of a Labour government.  

"My focus is the Island, local issues and serving our community. We deserve better and I look forward to taking the fight to Bob Seely."
