As­sem­bling for your votes

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

VOT­ERS go to the polls on Thurs­day, May 5, to choose the next Lon­don Assem­bly Mem­ber for Hilling­don and Eal­ing, as well as all other mem­bers of the Lon­don Assem­bly and the Lon­don Mayor.

To vote in these elec­tions, you must be reg­is­tered by April 19.

Dr Onkar Sa­hota has been the mem­ber of the Lon­don Assem­bly for Eal­ing and Hilling­don since 2012, be­com­ing the first Labour party can­di­date to be elected in the su­per­con­stituency.

He took the po­si­tion with a 3,110 vote ma­jor­ity, rep­re­sent­ing a 9.2% swing, de­feat­ing in­cum­bent Con­ser­va­tive Party mem­ber Richard Barnes, who was the Deputy Mayor of Lon­don and for­mer Hilling­don Coun­cil­lor.

In their own words, (al­pha­bet­i­cally by can­di­date), here’s why you should vote for them.

Last week we fea­tured Con­ser­va­tive Do­minic Gil­ham, the Green Party’s Meena Hans and Lib­eral Demo­crat Francesco Fruzza.
