My name is Phillip Marshall, the local Labour candidate in Consett North ward for the County Council elections on Thursday 6th May.

I’m standing for election because I love Consett, I have lived here all my life. My daughter is growing up here and I want to do all I can to improve our communities.

I have been involved in many local projects such as being a public representative on Derwent Valley Partnership. You may know me from a 100-hour Snooker Marathon, raising £4,000 for local charities.

I truly believe if you elect me as your councillor for Consett North, I would be a strong, positive advocate representing you on local issues and will effect change and make things happen. There’s lots to do but we should be ambitious in our plans.
We pledge to work alongside residents, local businesses and other organisations to ensure that the area continues to develop. Being part of a vibrant Labour Party across Durham means we will be ably supported to offer a strong voice for Consett North at County level. Growing again after the effects of the last year needs co-ordinated action at all levels, something other candidates cannot offer.


In this election I am joined by Clive Hedges, another candidate who has spent most of his life living and/or working in County Durham. We both passionately believe in the need for local accountability.

“I know how much people care about the area. It means so much to me and I will do my best to represent you.”
