Hampstead Town by-election

Camden Labour has selected well-known tenants’ leader from Russell’s Nurseries Larraine Revah as the candidate for the Hampstead Town by-election on 25th September 2008. The Hampstead Town by election was caused by the resignation of Conservative Councillor Mike Greene.

Larraine has lived locally since she was 13 years old, growing up on Finchley Road and schooled locally at JFS.

A mother of two, Larraine has worked and volunteered for a number of children’s and early years charities over the years, focusing on helping children with special needs.

Larraine said:

“I have lived in the ward on the Russell Nurseries estate since 1990 and have loved every minute of it. My passion is my local community, working hard to make it cleaner, greener and safer.”

“In this election, there is no choice between the Tories and Lib Dems – they are joined at the hip at the Town Hall. People are getting fed up with broken promises and the failure of the Lib Dem Tory alliance to listen when they consult local people on issues which are important to us.”

“The only way to challenge the continued cuts to youth clubs and hikes to meals on wheels and care charges is to give a vote to Labour.”

I’ve worked with Larraine on a number of campaigns and I think she’d make an excellent councillor. I’ll be helping her out in the next few weeks so if you are able to join me, please contact me here.
