REDLANDS resident Mo McSevney has been chosen as the Labour Party candidate for this year’s Reading Borough Council elections in May 2019.
Mo lives in Rothbury Court on the Hexham Road estate with her partner and children.
She is a community organiser in south Reading, based in Northumberland Avenue, working to develop job opportunities and improve local facilities in the area.
Her job has meant working with businesses and employers, including the university, Reading Buses and the council.
Mo said “I’m delighted to have been chosen to stand by Redlands Labour Party to represent the ward I live in. I believe that we need to stand up and make ourselves heard, so working with friends and neighbours, I have pressed the council on a wide range of issues including our park and open spaces, communal gardens, showers, bathrooms and bin rooms.
Jan, David and Tony are an impressive team of campaigners. I hope that with your trust I will be able to join them and our MP Matt Rodda in achieving more for the place I live in.”
Reading East MP Matt Rodda (pictured with Mo) said “I’ve known Mo for many years and I’m so pleased she is now getting a chance to serve on the council. I have no doubt that Mo will be a hard-working representative and a strong voice for Redlands and she has my full support.”
