The pub­lic vote

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

green belt, to de­velop more af­ford­able hous­ing for buy­ers and those who rent with res­i­dents of Eal­ing and Hilling­don get­ting pri­or­ity.

Main­tain the fund­ing for Lon­don’s Police ser­vice – not cut as pro­posed by oth­ers to con­tinue the re­duc­tion in crime across both bor­oughs and se­cure the fu­ture of the PCSOs.

Work with TfL to get the north to south links needed in both bor­oughs and en­sure all step-free Cross­rail sta­tions open on time while pro­tect­ing the Free­dom Pass.

Pro­mote both Eal­ing and Hilling­don, cel­e­brat­ing the peo­ple, the places, the en­vi­ron­ment and the her­itage and look to the fu­ture as an im­por­tant part of Greater Lon­don.

I have lived and worked in Lon­don for most of my life. I am an adult ed­u­ca­tion teacher and a Lon­doner through and through.

I love Lon­don and love liv­ing in its vi­brant west.

I would rep­re­sent the views of my fel­low Eal­ing and Hilling­don res­i­dents with pas­sion.

The Green Party is the only one fo­cused on the pos­i­tive, long-term changes that would ben­e­fit us and the planet as a whole.

Lon­don is the most dy­namic place on Earth, so with cen­tral gov­ern­ment sit­ting on its hands, it’s up to cities like ours to show how it’s done and cre­ate a sus­tain­able life­style. We can live well, in har­mony with the planet rather than abus­ing it.

Should I be elected as your Lon­don Assem­bly mem­ber, I would truly rep­re­sent you and make sure City Hall im­ple­ments what is im­por­tant to you.

I would help pro­tect our pre­cious open spa­ces, im­prove our qual­ity of life and make Lon­don an even bet­ter place to live. As a mother (and now grand­mother!) I will treat your con­cerns about the fu­ture with em­pa­thy and un­der­stand­ing.

Air pol­lu­tion is a scandal, with 9,500 Lon­don­ers dy­ing ev­ery year as a re­sult. I will cham­pion plan­ning and trans­port poli­cies that re­duce pol­lu­tion and im­prove well­be­ing. I am strongly op­posed to Heathrow ex­pan­sion be­cause of the ex­tra air pol­lu­tion it would cause, and know I have the back­ing of my party.

For a pos­i­tive fu­ture, please vote Green.

En­sure there is de­cent hous­ing avail­able to buy and rent, truly af­ford­able for or­di­nary Lon­don­ers. We need smart rent con­trols to en­sure peo­ple can af­ford to live here se­curely and re­verse the tide of home­less­ness.

Re­duce noise and air pol­lu­tion so we can hear our­selves think, and breathe with­out fill­ing our lungs with poi­son. Uxbridge Road needs zero emis­sions buses and less con­ges­tion.

Make pub­lic trans­port safer, more ac­ces­si­ble and more re­li­able. Our plan for new fares would mean you could travel any­where for an hour for one flat fare. Cy­cling fa­cil­i­ties would be im­proved across the bor­oughs.

Im­prove and ex­pand pub­lic toi­let fa­cil­i­ties in the area. No one should be un­com­fort­able when out and about. This would also cut the sort of anti-so­cial be­hav­iour caused by a lack of toi­lets.

En­sure fair wages and se­cure jobs here in Eal­ing and Hilling­don. We want to boost lo­cal busi­nesses with dis­counted tube ad­verts and a chain-store levy.
