Wolverhampton Labour Group have paid tribute to Ken Purchase, former Wolverhampton MP and Councillor. Council Leader, Roger Lawrence said, “Ken was a long standing local and national politician who kept a watchful eye on the Council even when in Parliament, he remained fully committed to locally provided services, locally delivered. He will be remembered as a friend and advocate of the City.”
Welcome to the website for Wolverhampton Labour Group
Wolverhampton is made up of 20 wards. Each ward is represented by three local councillors, who are elected to serve a four year term. On a rotational basis, at the end of their term of office, a local election takes place. As there are three councillors per ward, this means local elections are held three out of every four years.
The Labour Group is made up of all the Labour Councillors elected to Wolverhampton City Council. Your local Labour Councillors live in Wolverhampton and are elected to represent you at Council. They are not paid a wage but do receive allowances.
