Liz McInnes selected for Heywood and Middleton by-election

15th September, 2014 10:11 pm

Liz McInnes has been selected as the Labour candidate for the Heywood and Middleton by-election on October 9th. With a majority of 5,971, Labour are expected to hold the seat, but McInnes is likely to face stiff competition from UKIP. We will bring you more information of the selection as soon as we have it.

McInnes is a councillor in Rossendale, a few miles outside the constituency, works as a healthcare scientist and is a Unite union rep. You can follow her on Twitter here.

Congratulations to Liz and commiserations to the other candidates. Let’s hope to see a Labour hold on October 9th.
