Camden Labour plans to tackle the fundamental issues around inequality and hold the ‘biggest ever’ conversation with residents and businesses in the boroughThursday, June 7th, 2012
Labour run Camden has promised a bold plan for the borough – one that will challenge the Government’s agenda for public services and will make Camden a better borough, ensuring no one is left behind.
The plan focusses on five pledges:
- Providing democratic and strategic leadership fit for changing times
- Developing new solutions with partners to reduce inequality
- Creating conditions for and then harnessing the benefits of economic growth
- Investing in our communities to ensure sustainable neighbourhoods
- Delivering value for money services that are ‘right first time’.
Now Camden Labour is encouraging all our residents to get involved and help us develop the ideas that will deliver a better Camden.
Local Kilburn Labour councillors Marayam Eslamdoust, Thomas Gardiner and Mike Katz visited Abbey Community Centre today with Labour Mayoral candidate Ken Livingstone to discuss the gangs, youth unemployment and the impact of the Government’s cuts with young people.
Local councillor Mike Katz said, “it was great to speak to young people from Camden about what their experiences are of growing up in London. They are all worried about spiralling youth unemployment and the cuts from the Tory Government which are hitting the youth services which they really value and rely upon.
Groups of young people and youth workers from a number of projects in Camden attended the meeting with Ken and shared their concerns with Labour’s Mayoral candidate. Ken promised if elected to stand up for London’s young people and ensure that the city is a safe, more affordable city to grow up in.
