Welcome to the Washington and Sunderland West Labour Party
We are a hard-working team of elected representatives, volunteers and activists working to make the place we all live, better. We are delighted that the Labour run city council is now making great progress on the regeneration of our City Centre and the surrounding towns, building on the foundations laid by our previous leader Cllr Paul Watson to set the wheels in motion. Since the appointment of a new Chief Executive, the election of Cllr Graeme Miller as leader in 2018 and the cabinet he has put in place to drive that regeneration forward the future is looking bright.
We currently have 42 Labour councillors on Sunderland City Council and our Member of Parliament, Sharon Hodgson, is a Labour MP. Sunderland Council and the city Councillors that make up its elected chamber have different responsibilities to Sharon but the content of this website will help you to learn more about whether it is Sharon or a Councillor that is responsible for dealing with your query.
