I am pleased to announce Penny Abraham, former councillor in Camden, is supporting my campaign, and wrote this letter to support me.
I write in support of Raj Chada ‘s application to succeed Frank Dobson as our MP. I was a councillor for 16 years, 4 of which coincided with Raj’s rapid rise from Housing lead to Leader, and 4 of which involved working closely with Raj when he became Chair of the Party.
Raj is a steadfast holder of the best Labour values. He has the courage to say the difficult things, and has no “side” to him. What you see is what you get. This is really important in a political world riven with intrigue and spin. And we know from Frank’s great example that this approach suits Holborn and St Pancras.
In his career, Raj has had a meteoric rise as a lawyer, taking on some of the most difficult cases. He is very highly regarded in the legal profession, winning a number of prizes for his work.
I urge members of the Holborn and St Pancras Labour Party to turn out, and vote for the best candidate, when the moment comes.
Retired Camden Councillor
