A Coleshill Town Councillor, elected as a Conservative at the elections in May 2015, has left the party and joined Labour, claiminghis former party ‘were more focused on creating division than helping local people’.
Coleshill North Town Councillor, Adam Richardson said;
“I joined the Conservative Party many years ago, believing they were the best party to take our town of Coleshill forward. Sadly, the first-hand experience I have of working with the local Conservatives has not been a positive one. Don’t get me wrong, most of them are lovely people but unfortunately my experience of working with one particular individual has left a very sour taste.
I’m delighted to join the Labour Party and I know from working with the Labour Councillors in Coleshill, that they honestly want to improve our town and to make improvements here for the benefit of local people.”
North Warwickshire’s Labour Group Leader and Coleshill Town Councillor, Adam Farrell said;
“I’m delighted to welcome Adam Richardson to the Labour Party. He is a hardworking and capable Councillor who wants what is best for our town. I know he has felt upset and disillusioned with the local Conservative Party for over a year now and he has taken what must have been a very difficult personal decision to leave them.
Although the Town Council does not really operate on party political lines, I know Adam will be an asset to the Labour Party in Coleshill and I look forward to working with him.”
