Visit to Venture Housing Association with Secretary of State for Local Communities

Communities Secretary John Denham MP joined me for a visit Kensington-based housing association Venture, where we met a number of local tenants.

I was egger to visit, having heard about some of the fabulous work that Venture do, empowering tenants to work together.I was keen to see first hand how tenants were involved in decision making and learn from the experiences of local residents. 

Housing is especially close to me, as one of my top priorities for the area.

Wavertree’s Choice

Luciana Berger has been selected by Liverpool Wavertree Labour Party to be their Prospective Parliamentary  Candidate

Luciana said:

“Having moved to Liverpool last year, I’m proud to have been selected as Labour’s candidate. The campaign starts here to keep Liverpool Wavertree Labour. Jane Kennedy has served as this constituency’s MP with great pride and passion and I know she has found it a tremendous privilege to represent Liverpool Wavertree for more than 18 years. Jane will be a hard act to follow but I’m determined to make Labour’s campaign a success.  I will be fighting on the issues that matter to all the people of Wavertree and I look forward to serving the local community.”

“Labour is determined to secure growth not choke off recovery and protect the great investment that’s been made in our schools, the NHS and the Police. In this year’s election there’s a big choice between Labour or a Tory Government who threaten all the good work that’s been done in this city during the last 12 years. Sadly the Lib Dem Council has been branded the ‘worst council in the country’ and opportunities have already been missed. I’m determined that Liverpool Wavertree has the Labour voice it needs standing up and fighting for a fair deal for all.”

James Noakes, vice chairman of Liverpool Wavertree Labour Party, said:
“We’re delighted the members have selected Luciana and I’m confident that whenever the election comes Labour now has the best candidate for Liverpool Wavertree, who will give us fresh leadership and great enthusiasm. Labour has taken the right choices to support the economy, helping businesses and families in Liverpool Wavertree through the downturn. At the General Election people have a choice: Luciana will stand up and fight for a fair deal for all in Liverpool Wavertree.”
