Langney ward Eastbourne
We are delighted to announce that the Labour candidates for Langney are:
- Lee Comfort
- Roy William Noble
- Daniel Thomas (Dan)
I have lived in Eastbourne all of my life and in Langney for about 25 years (which is most of my life!).
I currently work for a local solicitor’s firm, but prior to that I worked at Sainsbury’s for 12 years where I was a union rep for Unite the Union. I am also the Secretary of my Unite geographical branch.
I was formerly the Labour representative on the Save the DHG campaign group for approximately 8 years until the group was disbanded last year. I felt compelled to get involved the moment that the Tory government started pulling apart our local hospital services and leaving people vulnerable.
Labour is the only party that can and will fight for hard working people. As a parent of two young boys, I have witnessed first hand the reduction in support for new parents (before and after birth) and struggled with the costs of nursery.
I believe that locally, it is time for change. The same two parties have run the Council by bickering and passing the baton to each other for far two long.
We need Councillors to step up and protect Eastbourne’s past as well as future. That is why I am standing in these elections.
On your ballot paper, look for: COMFORT Lee, Labour

Dan is a local tradesman in the construction industry and a member of Unite union. ‘I have lived in Eastbourne for 8 years with my partner and four children. Over that time I have seen this town in steady decline. The Lib Dem council has failed this town and the residents of Eastbourne need a voice at the Town Hall who will stand against cuts and closures implemented by Tory government and the Lib Dem council. I would bring Labour values to my role as councillor; care, compassion and fairness. I am in favour of reinstating youth clubs to help kids off the streets and focus on teaching them skills that would set them up for life. Labour CAN win in Eastbourne but only if people vote LABOUR. We are party that has your best interests at heart and will genuinely support you in these difficult times
On your ballot paper, look for: THOMAS, Daniel, Labour
