Elections will be held for the City of London Corporation's main Court of Common Council on Thursday 23rd March.

All our great Labour candidates want a stronger voice for local residents, support for small businesses, and more accountability and transparency in City's local government. They are:

Paul O'Brien - Coleman Street ward

Joe Batty - Cornhill ward

William Pimlott and Mary Durcan - Cripplegate ward

Jason Pritchard and Munsur Ali  - Portsoken ward

John Courtneidge - Queenhithe ward

In addition, Richard Crossan has already been elected as a councillor in Aldersgate ward.
