UK Citizens draw up Charter for London Mayor election
Volunteers are out this weekend getting support for a Citizens’ Charter aimed at the London Mayor elections on May 3.
They have already begun canvassing on housing estates, in community centres and places of worship on what voters want from the mayor during the next four-year term at City Hall.
Issues already raised include housing and public safety, which members of UK London Citizens are putting to the four main contesters at a special delegates’ assembly in Westminster on April 25.
Tory Boris Johnson, fighting for re-election, faces Labour’s Ken Livingstone who is battling to get back into City Hall after his defeat last time round. They are in a four-cornered hustings debate with Lib Dems’ Brian Paddick and Greens’ Jenny Jones.
London Citizens plans to text or email the candidates’ responses to members of the public who have signed up to the live ‘stream out’ coverage.
