Name: Grahame Morris
Candidate for: Easington
Born and brought up in the Easington Constituency, Grahame Morris has spent all of his adult life working with others to bring about improvements for local residents in the constituency. With thirty years of commitment to the Labour movement and a proven track record of service to the community, Grahame feels tremendously privileged to be carrying the standard for the Labour Party and fully intends to fight to maintain this historically important seat for Labour at the next General Election. Grahame has always sought to raise the aspirations of East Durham’s communities through his work with the voluntary sector and is determined to improve the life chances of working people and their families. He stands for Labour’s traditional values of decency, fairness and social justice and feels Easington needs an MP who will harness the potential of its people and fight determinedly on their behalf in Westminster. Grahame is married with two sons and lives in Dawdon in Seaham. Having spent his early career in the NHS, Grahame began working with John Cummings, MP in 1987 and has served as a Labour Member of Easington District Council for fifteen years.
In 2000, Grahame was appointed Parliamentary Officer for the National Association of Councillors organising training events and providing information on policy development in local government to councillors across the United Kingdom. He is firmly committed to working with the new Durham County Council and the various Town and Parish Councils serving the constituency to bring about improvements for Easington’s communities and the lives of its residents.
