Local Labour Party members in Barnsley have selected Dan Jarvis as their candidate for the forthcoming Barnsley Central by-election.
Speaking following his selection, Labour’s new candidate, Dan Jarvis said:
“Barnsley is a great community with a proud history and I’m honoured that local Labour party members have chosen me as their candidate for Barnsley Central.
“The Tory-Lib Dem Government is cutting too fast and too deep- and they haven’t got a plan for growth and jobs in Barnsley. This by-election is a chance for the people of Barnsley to send a clear message to David Cameron and Nick Clegg.
“I will always stand up for Barnsley and do the right thing for this community.”
