Mary Durcan, Secretary City of London Labour Party, announces;
“Tonight William Campbell-Taylor was elected as the common councillor for Portsoken ward in today’s by-election. This is the first victory for a candidate standing on a Party ticket in the Corporation of London.
William will join all the so-called independent councillors at the Guildhall. The red flag is certainly flying over the Guildhall tonight!
Is this the future?
Well done to William and special thanks to all those who helped secure this victory, especially our agent Peter Kenyon who has worked tirelessly.
