Subject: Please NOMINATE Diana Holland for Labour Party Treasurer
TO LABOUR CLP SECRETARIES
Dear CLP Secretary,
I want to thank everyone for all the support I have received as Labour’s Treasurer over the last 10 years. It has continued to be a great honour, and I am asking for your support by nominating me as Labour Party Treasurer for the next term.
We have transformed the Party’s finances, and in spite of all our opponents have thrown at us, we have eliminated the Party’s legacy debt, built our membership and kept Party finances on a sound and transparent footing. I am absolutely determined to make sure this continues, so we can support strong campaigns that make a real difference to people’s lives, hold this Tory government to account, and win elections locally and nationally. We achieve most when all parts of our Party come together.
I am committed to the pivotal role of active local constituency parties and to ensuring they are well-resourced, and am also a strong supporter of Labour’s affiliated unions and socialist societies.
My top three priorities :
– ensuring resources to campaign and win in the 2021 Elections and building to a General Election in 2024
– protecting and strengthening our funding base
– campaigning year-round, building Party membership, extending our reach
First elected to the NEC in 1994, I am proud to be the longest-serving NEC member, including as Party Chair in 2002/3. This experience has stood me in good stead as Party Treasurer.
As Assistant General Secretary of Unite, I have a proven track record against injustice and exploitation, for investment in jobs, communities and equality for all. With more than 30 years experience leading on Equalities in the T&G and Unite, I strongly support action to tackle under-representation of women, Black & Asian ethnic minority, disabled and LGBT+ people, and to ensure working class representation at all levels.
Now more than ever, we must be the Party standing up for our communities, the alternative to poverty, division, fear and hatred.
