Labour – Ben Yetts, of Blythway, WGC

I am proudly standing to represent the people of Welwyn West.

It would be an honour to carry the voice of this area’s residents into the council and provide a credible and determined alternative to the Conservatives in difficult, dogged times.

I’m standing up for every local person with an opinion to be heard.

I’m standing against the arrogance and the ignorance of the Conservative council.

It is with deference and diligence that I call upon Welwyn’s residents to share their views with me as I request to represent Welwyn West.

Conservative – Mandy Perkins*, of Canons Field, Welwyn
