Gray says: “After much consideration I have decided that I can run a strong campaign and be an effective representative for residents in St Lukes. It is clear from talking to people that there is an appetite for progressive politics and that there is an increasing belief that the Independents have failed to deliver. There are many challenges facing the ward particularly in terms of library and children services. Of course it will be difficult but with an ever increasing base of activists we will ensure St Lukes residents’ concerns are listened to and dealt with throughout the year.”
