Daventry: socialist candidate in council by-election

MEGAN PRICE, 22, is standing as the Socialist Party's candidate in a district council by-election in Daventry, Northamptonshire, where she lives.

She can depend on plenty of family support, as her father Tom and older sister Bea are both party members. Her father and mother are former Labour members of the Tory-dominated council - her mother, Penny Price, held the Drayton ward where Meg is now seeking election.

The by-election on 10 September was forced by the jailing of a former Tory (turned Independent) councillor, Terry Mullett, on fraud charges. He was found guilty of illegally claiming more than 13,000 in council tax discounts and housing benefits.

Meg opened her campaign on 8 August with a street stall in Daventry at which 11 copies of The Socialist were sold and many signed a Youth Fight for Jobs petition.

She said: "The Tory council deserves a big shake-up. It gambled and lost a lot of taxpayers' cash in Iceland and is enthusiastically supporting crackpot plans to build a canal arm and marina along with swamping the traditional market town with thousands of unaffordable homes."

Meg calls upon any supporters in the East Midlands area to help in any way with the election campaign. She will be up against the major parties, together with the possible threat of a BNP candidate. Please call 01327 842395 if you wish to get involved.
