PPC selected in key marginal seat Great Grimsby

26th July, 2014 7:36 pm

Today, Melanie Onn has been selected as Labour’s prospective parliamentary candidate (PPC), for key marginal seat Great Grimsby.


Onn, who will stand as Labour’s candidate as current MP Austin Mitchell is stepping down, grew up in Grimsby and currently works as an organiser for UNISON.

Prior to being selected, on her website she explained her reasons for wanting to be Labour’s candidate for the area:

“Grimsby is the place that I am proud to call home. Grimsby is the place I choose to live and raise my son. Grimsby is my first and only choice to stand as your parliamentary candidate.

Grimsby needs a candidate and MP who listens to the views of local people, understands what matters and who can take that cause, loudly and proudly, all the way to Westminster. Grimsby is a Labour seat. I will fly the flag for the people, businesses and communities of Grimsby. My proven track record of working with Ministers and MPs demonstrates I will deliver the change that is needed to keep Grimsby Labour.”

Congratulations to Melanie, and commiserations to the other candidates.
