Who will lead Southwark after the local elections on 3rd May 2018? What will their vision be for Southwark?
On Monday 13th November 2017, many months before the London Local Elections on 3rd May 2018, Bankside Residents' Forum (BRF) supported by Coin Street Community Builderswill be hosting a LE2018 hustings (Leaders Debate) at the Coin Street Neighbourhood Centre.
This will be the first of a series of hustings that Bankside Residents' Forum will be hosting with a number of organisations across Southwark and North Lambeth.
We understand that it is extremely early to be holding hustings for the Local Elections in 2018 but believe it is neccessary, to ensure everyone utillises thier democratic right.
Typically Local Elections have far less turnout compared to General Elections. We seek to change this by providing opportunities for more people (especially young people) to get engaged locally.
The hustings will be chaired by Amir Eden, Chair of Bankside Residents' Forum
We would like to invite you to come along and use this opportunity to question the leaders of the local parties about issues which are of concern to you.
Selected questions will be put to the Leaders of the local parties. If you would like to ask a question please email firstname.lastname@example.org your question with your full name.
By registering online you have a greater chance that your question will be asked and you will be afforded preferential seating at the event.
There will also be opportunities for questions to be asked from the audience throughout the event.
Leaders from the local Labour Party, Liberal Democrats, Conservative Party, Green Party have all been invited to the hustings.
