Ruth Craigie


Local County Council elections will be held on May 4th 2017


The Exec of the Central Devon Constituency Labour Party are pleased and proud to endorse all of our Labour Party County Council candidates throughout Devon, but especially those within our constituency.   A rigorous selection process has validated our candidates and we have worked hard to stand Labour candidates in every one of our 60 Devon seats.  The candidates are ready to start their County Election Campaigns - driven by their need to work for social justice and the much-needed Labour values throughout Devon. The Exec will be fully supporting our Central Devon candidates and hope that all local Labour Party members and supporters will join the campaign.


When we go to the polls we are deciding what kind of future we want to live in. Politics is about priorities. We live in the fifth richest country in the world, and yet we can't even fill in our potholes.

It is about sharing out the wealth in a fair and just way. There are lots of jobs that need doing to make life safe, secure, comfortable and worth living, but most of these don't make a profit. This is why we need public services.

We need to protect the environment, raise animal welfare standards, improve education and opportunities for young people and provide a strong health service. Instead, Devon County Council has closed day care centres, old peoples homes, youth centres, cut bus services and given our libraries away. We need to stand up and be counted before it is too late.

Ruth Craigie – Labour Party candidate for Yelverton Rural
