Become a Councillor

Become a Conservative Councillor in the London Borough of Haringey

2018 Local Elections

The 2018 London Borough local elections are fast approaching, and in just 2 months time, residents of Haringey will be electing their new Councillors. Being a Councillor is an exciting and fulfilling opportunity.

If you would be interested in standing for Council next year, please get in touch with us. We are looking for candidates and have 27 seats to fill across Bruce Grove, Harringay, Northumberland Park, Seven Sisters, St. Ann's, Tottenham Green, Tottenham Hale, West Green, and White Hart Lane.

Why become a Councillor?

Becoming a Councillor is an incredibly rewarding experience. It gives you the opportunity to help your local community in Tottenham and be part of a committed team responsible for providing critical services in Tottenham. Being a Councillor is a great way to gain political experience and useful skills in public speaking, debating, and problem solving.

New Councillors are good news. They mean fresh ideas and fresh enthusiasm, and that will be good for Haringey. 

We know that Jeremy Corbyn's hard-left organisation Momentum have taken over the local Labour Party in Tottenham, allowing their socialist cronies to stand for Council in place of long-serving moderate Councillors who have been mercilessly shut out. Rumour has it that the Communist Party, Socialist Party, and Trades Unionist & Socialist Coalition will not be standing candidates in Tottenham, and will instead be backing Labour Party candidates. This is truly terrifying, and only serves to prove the importance of strong Conservative representation at the ballot box in May.
