HARDWORKING Halton Brook councillor and Labour Weaver Vale candidate John Stockton is out and about across the constituency today as he bids to keep the seat for the party.
The battling candidate, who won the fight to be Labour’s candidate for Weaver Vale, is showing no signs of complacency on the day of the General Election.
He said: “I am getting out on the door step today.
“I’m out and about in Runcorn at the moment, knocking on doors, talking to people and urging them to vote.
“I’ll be about all day, getting out to the voters, I’ll be in Frodsham and Helsby, and then Northwich, all over the place before heading to the count at about 11pm.
“I think if the weather were a bit better we would all feel a lot better.”
Mr Stockton, 54, who is head of department at Halewood Centre for Learning John Stockton, has been Labour constituency secretary for 15 years.
Following sitting MP Mike Hall’s decision to stand down, Cllr Stockton secured his place as Labour’s candidate beating former Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott’s son David, ex-Ellesmere Port and Neston council leader Justin Madders, and Labour party policy officer Ben Johnson.
