The Oldham West and Royton by-election is a must-win for Labour - and I'm proud to say #IbackJim!
Jim McMahon has led Oldham Council and served the people of Oldham with passion and distinction for a number of years. We have lost a much-loved and very hard working MP in Michael Meacher (read Jeremy Corbyn's tribute to him here), and it will take someone very special to follow in his footsteps. Jim McMahon is Oldham through-and-through, and I can think of nobody who would be a better MP for Oldham West and Royton, or who is a more worthy successor to Michael.
It is just over two weeks until polling day so every day of campaigning matters. I've already been in Oldham on the doorstep as much as possible and I encourage every Labour member and supporter to go along and lend a hand if possible.
The campaign office is at 227 Middleton Road, Chadderton, Oldham, OL9 6JR and is open between 09:30-19:00 - pop along, or sign up by clicking the link below.
See you there!
