On Thursday 22nd May, I am standing for re-election as one of the three councillors in Elthorne ward where I live.
My Lib Dem colleagues in the local elections are Joanna Dugdale and Harjinder Singh.
Joanna Dugdale is originally from Burnham near Slough. Joanna went to Cambridge University and trained to be an actress, but until recently she has been working at a speaker bureau. Joanna has lived in Ealing for five years and is married with a primary school age daughter. In 2010 she took the lead in saving a local playgroup from closure by volunteering as Emergency Fundraiser and ensuring that the target of £6,500 was raised within three months. Education and children’s issues are areas which concern her most, along with the environment, citizenship and volunteering.
Harjinder Singh was born in the Netherlands and has also lived in Ireland and India prior to moving to West London. He worked for 25 years in the international travel business. Since coming to the UK he has worked as a consultant to the Slough Race Equality Council and now works with the Sikh Federation lobbying both the Westminster and the EU parliament on Sikh related issues. An experienced campaigner, Harjinder has previously stood for election in Hounslow and in Norwood Green ward at the last local elections. Harjinder is particularly interested in transport and is keen to make sure that Hanwell and West Ealing both gain the maximum benefit from Crossrail including increased frequency of trains and step-free access at Hanwell station as well as improving local facilities for cycling and walking.
If you live and are entitled to vote in Elthorne, I hope that you will support the Lib Dem team in the local elections, and our MEP Sarah Ludford in the European elections on the same day.Leave a comment
