Cllr Roger Lawrence, Leader of Wolverhampton City Council, said “I was deeply saddened to hear of the death of Nelson Mandela. As a mark of respect, flags at the Civic Centre will be flown at half-mast today and we are opening a book of condolence for people from the city to share their tributes. On behalf of myself and Wolverhampton Labour Group I send my sincere condolences to his family, his legacy will live on.”
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.
