Labour announces Caledonian ward candidates for May 2014 elections

Rupert Perry and Paul Convery will be re-standing in this year’s election for Islington Council and will be joined by a lifelong community campaigner, Una O’Halloran.

Rupert and Paul were both elected for Caledonian Ward in 2006 and re-elected in 2010. Previously Rupert had represented the Cally from 1990 to 2002. Both are well known in the area (Rupert especially) and need no introduction.

Rupert and Paul were delighted when the local Labour Party picked Una to fill the slot after our 3rd Councillor, Charlynne Pullen, decided against re-standing.

Una was born and raised in the south of Islington and has been actively involved in community affairs for more than 15 years. For the last 6 years she has been chair of her local tenants association, the Safer Neighbourhood Panel and local Housing Panel.

In her daytime job, Una is a Teaching Assistant in a local school where she is a GMB member and workplace representative. Una is actively involved in two local churches and is also a school governor.

Paul Convery says “We’ve got an outstanding candidate in Una. She is going to be a great Councillor working hard for the people on the Cally. Una has got her feet firmly planted on the ground. She modestly says she is an ordinary person who wants to work hard for people like herself.

“When Labour picked her she said very eloquently that she knew the benefit of education to combat poverty and, as an active member of her local churches, she ‘knows the value of faith and community’.

“I think Caledonian Ward is going to be an even better community having Una as its next new elected representative.”

Over the next 3 months, Charlynne Pullen will be fulfilling all her duties as a local Councillor right up to election day.
