Medway Labour & Co-operative Group has elected Simon Curry as new Regeneration, Culture & Environment Spokesperson at their Annual General Meeting . Andy Stamp, who had been the Regeneration, Culture & Environment Spokesperson since 2015, has chosen to step down from the role and didn’t stand for re-election.
Vince Maple, Medway Labour & Co-op Leader said:
“I want to thank Andy for his outstanding service to our Group and the people of Medway in this critical role. Andy has always been the voice of reason on everything from visitors parking permits to the Housing Infrastructure Fund, fighting to save jobs at Chatham Docks to getting the council to take those first early steps in recognising the issue of the climate emergency by agreeing to stop single use plastic and so much more. I welcome Simon to the shadow cabinet, his expertise, experience and passion for building a better Medway and holding the administration to account will build on the excellent work of Andy.”
Andy Stamp said:
“It has been a great pleasure to carry out the Regeneration, Culture and Environment role, standing up for the people of Medway, holding the Conservative-run Council to account and putting forward a positive, progressive alternative. I look forward to continuing to work with Simon and wish him every success in taking forward this key shadow cabinet role.”
Simon Curry, Medway Labour & Co-operative Regeneration, Culture & Environment Spokesperson added:
“I am looking forward to my new role, building on the excellent work of my colleague Andy Stamp, and sharing our vision for Medway as an exciting place to live and work in a clean and green environment.”
