The selection of Labour candidates for next May’s council elections in Southend-on-Sea is ongoing. So far, the following have been selected:

Blenheim Park Matt Dent
Chalkwell Taylor Barrall
Eastwood Park Elaine Wardrop
Kursaal Helen McDonald
Milton Cllr Julian Ware-Lane
Prittlewell Mike Fieldhouse
Southchurch Ros Sanders
St Laurence Reg Copley
St Luke’s Donna Richardson
Thorpe Rod Birks
Victoria Cllr Ian Gilbert
Westborough Cllr Anne Jones

Thus, five wards have yet to select, and I imagine that these will be done in the next couple of months.

Of this magnificent dozen (well, eleven of them are magnificent anyway) five are first-time candidates, five are women, two are defending their seats, and three are current councillors. One is a former mayor, one is eighteen. All would grace the council chamber with aplomb.

Five write blogs, and the four others include
