Bally Singh to stand as Labour parliamentary candidate

Coventry Editorial 23rd Sep, 2014 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

POPULAR councillor and campaigner Bally Singh has been selected as the Labour parliamentary candidate for Kenilworth and Southam at the next election.

He will represent the Labour party after standing as councillor for the city’s Whoberly ward since 2010.

Mr Singh has been a strong voice and leader for many campaigns during his time as a ward councillor.

He backed a campaign to improve the safety of roads in the city including key routes in Whoberley and also helped put right several key bus routes, including the popular number One service, after they were changed by Centro back in 2012.

Singh also has had notable successes including a strong campaign against proposals for Underground Coal Gasification in the heart of Warwickshire’s greenbelt.

In addition to being an active local campaigner, he is well qualified with a degree in International Politics, as well as making a successful career in Learning and Development.

He is said to be looking forward to helping and meeting more residents throughout the constituency and believes that as individuals we need to support each other to build healthier and more caring communities.

In the light of the 2015 general elections he said: “Only the Labour Party can defeat the Tories and Liberals and must do so on a positive message of change – engaging with local residents to tackle everyday issues, and by making a difference.”
