13. Stand for Cornwall Council
Cornwall Council get paid an allowance and the minimum commitment is 8 meetings a year. However if you were to do the bare minimum you wouldn't be a great councillor and you wouldn't last very long.
St Austell & Newquay Labour contested 5 of the 22 seats that made up the constituency last May. The next election there will be less Cornwall Councillors due to changes by the electoral commission. I'd personally like to see Labour members stand in all of the seats. The earlier we get started, the better our chances. All the data we collect will feed into general election campaigning.
14. Stand for Parliament
Any Labour member can throw their hat into the ring. If you fill out a form and are approved by the NEC then you can stand at a hustings event to be selected by the CLP membership.
