Cllr Savva’s resignation means that there is a by-election in Bush Hill Park. The date is the 28th July and I’m the Liberal Democrat candidate.
Dawn Barnes, one of the best-of-the-best at getting people motivated, has taken charge of the campaign, and we had a very good feedback at our annual local party dinner last night, bouyed up by some celebrity guests. As well as guest speaker Nick Harvey, minister for the armed forces, we had Caroline Pidgeon and Mike Tuffrey from the GLA. Both Mike and Lembit Opik, who also attended, are would be Lib Dem candidates for London Mayor whilst Marisha Ray, sat at the next table, is already one of our candidates for the GLA list.
But enough name dropping and whittering away. If you want to help me win in Bush Hill Park, drop me an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Should be a busy and interesting few weeks. And if you want to see me out and about, come and support the Raglan Schools Summer Event tomorrow afternoon; the weather is supposed to be good and local schools depend on events such as this to raise monies for “added extras” like school trips. So bring your wallet and be generous!
Right, back to printing posters – if you want one, get in touch and we’ll rush one round.
