candidate for the Hackney Central by-election
July 21st 2016
Russell has lived in Hackney all his life and works in the fitness industry. He lives with his young family close to London Fields with other relatives nearby.
"The cost of housing and childcare are huge issues for people in my neighbourhood," says Russell. "Even people on good wages or working long hours struggle to make ends meet."
Russell also wants to see action on Hackney's low recycling rate, which is bad for the environment and costs local taxpayers money.
