Labour candidate Fran Belbin has won the Firth Park council by-election.
The by-election was called due to previous long-standing councillor Alan Law stepping down due to health reasons.
Speaking about the victory Fran commented: “I’m delighted that Firth Park residents have once again put their faith in Labour delivering for their area.
“This was a close result and I know that residents want to see improvements. I can’t wait to get stuck in and deliver on my key priorities – to tackle litter, fly tipping and ASB, support youth opportunities, champion our parks, and stand up for everyone’s housing needs.
“And above all I promise to be a voice for residents all year round.
“I’m excited to be joining councillors Abdul Khayum and Abtisam Mohamed in working hard to deliver for Firth Park”.
Councillor Fran Belbin lives locally to Firth Park and her professional background is in supporting young people.
Fran has also been involved in lots of community led projects – and she’s raised over £1 million for community led projects this year. As well as this Fran helped co-ordinated the assembly and delivery of six thousand food hampers to families on free school meals across North-East Sheffield last summer.
Fran will now work alongside Labour councillors throughout Sheffield in standing up for the city’s needs
