KIM SINGLETON, from Hightown, has been elected as the first female General Secretary of the Socialist Labour Party.
A former Community worker, Ms Singleton, 52, has lived on Merseyside all her life and has been an activist in local politics since childhood when her parents organised a rent strike to protest over slum housing. She is the author of a study of housing struggles on Merseyside 1968-1973. At the 2010 General Election she stood for the SLP in the Liverpool Wavertree Constituency.
Kim said: “I’m also the first SLP General Secretary from Merseyside so I’m really looking forward to the challenge”.
SLP President, Andrew Jordan, said “I know Kim has only lived in Sefton for a little over a year but she loves the place and already is getting involved in some of the issues facing the borough. I’m excited at the prospect of working together in carrying forward our policies and principles”.
