Russell French's Big Survey

On July 21st, we will have the chance to elect a new councillor; someone to represent us at the Town Hall and go to with local problems.


I’m a local resident, bringing up a young family here in Hackney Central. I’ve never stood for election before, but I think this area deserves better than another Labour councillor who will just toe the party line.


I’m kicking off my campaign with this survey because I think the best local councillors listen to what residents have to say.

What sort of house or flat do you live in?
