Bramley: Standing councillors re-selected for 2018 local election

Councillors Jools Heselwood, Caroline Gruen and Kevin Ritchie (Labour, Bramley and Stanningley) welcome that work has started to create 22 new Council homes at Broadlea Street in Bramley.

The three sitting councillors for Bramley & Stanningley Ward have been re-selected to contest the seat for Labour at the all-out Leeds City Council elections in 2018.

Councillors Caroline Gruen, Julie Heselwood and Kevin Ritchie were the unanimous choice of party members at a meeting held at Bramley Villagers Club.

Chair of Bramley Labour Party, Stephen McBarron, said:

“Members had expressed full confidence in the trio after recent triumphs. These include securing the future of Bramley Library with its incorporation into the new Hub and a successful campaign resulting in the building of the first new council housing in the area for decades – providing much-needed affordable homes for local families.”


The three sitting Armley Labour councillors – Alison Lowe, Jim McKenna, and Alice Smart were also reselected last week.


There’s some change in Kirkstall, though, with Cllr Lucinda Yeadon stepping down. Hannah Bithell has been selected as the candidate to stand in her place.
