Hugo secures the support of Momentum members in Scarborough & Whitby.
At the meeting held at The Street in Scarborough, local momentum members were balloted to choose their preferred candidate from a list of 4 nominees. Along with the other candidate in attendance on the night, I was able to give a short speech explaining a little about my background, my activities in the party and my policy priorities.
There followed some brief but probing questions to the candidates before the votes were cast in secret. The meeting was conducted in a comradely and professional manner, which was a credit to the Chair and the attendees. I was delighted to receive the support and nomination of the local momentum activists and will do all I can to get selected and win this seat for Labour and get Jeremy Corbyn into Number 10!
