Maggie Don is standing to be elected to Northamptonshire County Council to represent the Wicksteed Division

Maggie is your Labour Party & Co-Operative Party Candidate for Wicksteed Division

My name is Maggie Don and I have lived in Kettering for over 30 years, with my 4 now grown up children.

I have been a member of the Labour Party and Co-Operative parties most of my adult life. Prior to retirement I was the co-ordinator for KCU for almost 30 years and still work in the charity shop and serve as a trustee.

I have represented Wicksteed & St. Michael’s Ward as a Borough Councillor since 2011 and hold regular street surgeries and deliver annual newsletters across the whole Ward.

Labour is campaigning hard to make Northamptonshire a better place to live and work. At a time when many people are suffering greatly because of cuts implemented by the Tory Government and Tory County Council, Labour is working to make our area better.

Our pledges to you:

  • Labour will rebuild Adult Social Care Services.
  • Labour will improve our pavements and roads.
  • Labour will improve our failing Children’s Services.
  • Labour will help and support local businesses.
  • Labour will put people at the heart of decision-making.
