Our candidates in the City of London council elections secured an historic victory last night.
The new Labour councillors elected on Thursday night were Jason Pritchard and Munsur Ali (Portsoken ward), and Will Pimlott and Mary Durcan (Cripplegate ward) - who join Richard Crossan (Aldersgate ward), who was also recently elected.
In Portsoken, one of the poorest wards in the country, Labour was defending its only previous seat.
"I'm very proud to have played my part in a great victory for Labour in the City," says Richard Crossan. "For us to get a single seat in Guildhall was unthinkable just a few years ago, and I'm delighted that Jason, Munsur, Will and Mary will be joining me for the next four years. For the small but spirited Labour Party here in the Square Mile, this is a very special day indeed."
Huge congratulations to all our candidates, who will work fantastically hard for local residents and businesses in the City of London.
