CALDERDALE councillor Joshua Fenton-Glynn has signalled he wants to stand again as Labour’s candidate in the Calder Valley seat.
Coun Fenton-Glynn stood for the party in 2015 in Calder Valley which was one of Labour’s target seats.
However, Conservative MP Craig Whittaker successfully defended the constituency with a majority of 4,427.
Confirming his decision to stand, Coun Fenton-Glynn said: “I’m standing because Calder Valley deserves an MP who will be a strong voice for our area.
“A strong voice on funding for local schools, a strong voice for flood defences and a strong voice for local and regional development.
"If I'm chosen as the candidate I look forward to taking this message directly to the people of Calder Valley and working with many of you to win back this seat for Labour."
