Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi has been selected to be the Labour parliamentary candidate for Slough.
Tan is the Chair of Gravesham Constituency Labour Party, the former Mayor of Gravesham and is a seasoned campaigner for the Labour Party in the South East.
Tan Dhesi said:
“It is a privilege and an honour to be selected as Labour’s candidate for Slough, the town I was born and brought up in, and a place I love so much.
“I want to thank Fiona Mactaggart for her 20 years of dedication to Slough and the Labour Party.
“I am determined to be a strong voice for Slough after 7 years of damaging Tory cuts.
“This General Election is a choice between a Labour Party, who will stand up for the many and a Conservative Party, which only looks after the privileged few.
“If elected, I will work tirelessly for the people of Slough.”
