Ashley Dalton, Labour's parliamentary candidate for Rochford and Southend East

* Prior to 1997 this seat had different boundaries and was known as Southend East

Since I represent a ward in Rochford and Southend East I will obviously be very interested. Ashley is a great candidate and will work tirelessly. She has a good team, and however June 8th turns out for us I am certain she will Labour will put up the good fight here.
