Shouldn’t politics just be about people meeting, talking, and taking action together? There are some good politicians in this city, making a difference: present and visible in their communities, listening, and working with local people. We need that here in ‘Hunslet and Riverside’.
So, we’re out and about year-round in the community – at meetings, in cafes and pubs, at events, and more. And we’re especially keen to make ourselves available ahead of elections, so people know who and what they’re voting for.
In the immediate run-up to the election, we’ll publish here a list of times and places we’ll be. Note: we’ll keep updating this list, so please watch this space – and we’re very open to invitations! And/or please get in touch anytime. If we get elected, we’ll hold at least weekly public drop-ins around the ward. Speak/meet soon..?
