As residents of Ward 4, we know what many of challenges we face in the ward and the broader city are because we encounter them in our daily lives at work, in the community and at home.
We know someone who is looking for work or for an affordable place to live.
We take the bus, so we know the frustrations of an ill-timed transfer or a bus that leaves early.
We walk, cycle and drive around the city, so we know the state of the roads and the sidewalks.
We know how fast, and how well, the snow is cleared on our street. We know when the sidewalks are cleared (or aren't).
We shop in the ward, so we know which storefronts are vacant and which are busy.
We all have our own areas of knowledge. But we need to speak up if we want to see action.
I welcome your contribution, whether it is the identification of an issue or a way that we could address an issue. I hope you will share your ideas with me and with the other candidates (in Ward 4 and elsewhere).
Please keep it friendly, both in sharing your ideas and in discussing ideas shared by your fellow Londoners.
