Responding to the Blackwall election results this morning, Leader of the Labour Group, Cllr Rachael Saunders, said:
“The people of Blackwall and Cubit Town have sent a clear message that they want politicians who will stand up for local people, tackle poor social landlords such as One Housing and fight for the infrastructure and investment the Isle of Dogs needs. Today they have elected excellent councillors in Dave Chesterton and Candida Ronald who I have no doubt will serve them with distinction.
“The people of Blackwall and Cubitt Town want a strong and principled opposition to hold the Mayor to account.
“With the elections now decided it is important that politicians of all sides reflect on what the electorate have told them. We must find ways to cooperate for the good of our residents."
