The East Sussex branch of the Co-operative Party held its AGM on 17th May at the Central Methodist Church in Eastbourne.
Jean Couture was elected as Chair, with Cllr Nigel Sinden as vice chair, and Dave Brinson as Secretary/Treasurer. The branch also nominated delegates to represent the Co-op at the local Labour Party constituencies in East Sussex.
We are keen to support Labour's campaigns in the forthcoming General Election- and especially noted the recent selection of our branch member Lloyd Russell-Moyle to take on Norman Baker in the Lewes Constituency. We also have several branch members serving as Labour councillors on Hastings Borough Council.
Special congratulations to the outgoing secretary of the Sussex Co-op Party, Lis Telcs, who has been elected to represent the South East region on the Co-op Party National Executive.
