Election fever hits London
April 26, 2010
As we go into the third week of the election campaign, Mark has been overwhelmed by the fantastically positive response he has received across the constituency when talking to voters on the doorstep, in local pubs, at community meetings and on street stalls. He is out and about every morning, afternoon and evening in the constituency and hopes to see as many residents as possible. However, if you do not manage to see him to chat personally, you might wish to catch him at one of the following:
1pm, Tuesday 27th April – Hustings at St Mary-le-Bow church, Bow Lane in the City of London. Nearest tube, Mansion House
7pm, Thursday 29th April – Q&A at Globe View, Queenshythe in the City. Mark answers your questions as candidly and openly as possible before the final televised debate on BBC1.
11am, Saturday 1st May – Street stall, Pimlico Farmers’ Market. After holding successful street stalls in Marylebone High Street, Berwick Street, Victoria Street and Tachbrook Market, Mark and his team will be there to talk to residents at a street stall at the farmers’ market this Saturday.
7pm, Tuesday 4th May – Public meeting, St Peter’s, Eaton Square. Having held a public meeting in Grosvenor Chapel last Wednesday, Mark now answers your questions at St Peter’s. All welcome.
Do feel free to chat to Mark about your concerns should you see him in the constituency – he is always happy to listen and indeed engage in a good political debate! We have updated Mark’s photo diary of the campaign on his Flickr site (which can also be viewed on this site’s gallery).
We hope to continue as normal a service as we can during the election period but our contact details have changed and we are working from a different office so please be patient with us while we iron out any teething problems.
It is incredibly hard to boil down Mark’s nine years of service into a handful of bullet points, but here are three reasons why we believe Mark deserves your vote on 6 May:
1. A strong, respected voice on the economy
Mark knows this election is about the economy. He has consistently called for a reduction in our national debt, reduced taxes for the lowest paid and better value from our public services.
2. A record of making local issues national
From campaigns on business rates, Bart’s Hospital and home education to helping the creative industries, Mark has a record of taking what YOU write to him and turning it into a national issue.
3. Standing up for the most vulnerable
Mark and his team look after the interests of ALL residents by regularly speaking up on the less glamorous side of London life – housing, immigration, homelessness, crime and deprivation.
If you want to know more about Mark’s record, please browse this website where Mark has posted a large number of articles and speeches over the past nine years on a vast array of subjects. For a synopsis of his work, you might also take a look at the Reports and Newsletters page. If you have any specific questions, just drop Mark a line – see the Contact page for details.
Mark is standing as a candidate for the Conservative Party. If you would like more information about where Conservatives stand on the big issues, visit the Party’s website which details exactly why we believe Britain needs a change of government, and how a Conservative government would transform the country.
