With the excitement of the General Election over we head straight into our next campaign: the local elections for Hammersmith & Fulham Borough Council in May 2018. We are asking you, our members, if you might wish to stand for the Council.
The Council has 46 councillors representing 16 wards and all will be up for re-election next spring. As usual H&F Lib Dems will be putting forward candidates for each of these seats, so that all our supporters will be able to vote for a Lib Dem. In a lot of wards no active campaigning will take place, but we still need candidates on the ballot paper even in non-target wards.
If you are interested in standing fill out the form by 27th July (we cannot guarantee you will be able to stand in your preferred ward as we attempt to ensure each ward has a full roster but we will try our best).
We know that many members would like to campaign in their own wards, but before April next year we will require hard work to be focused on our target wards, only together can we achieve success.
And finally, if you’d like to be a Councillor but not just yet, joining the campaign teams in the target wards is a great way to learn the ropes before the next council elections. Either way we need your help to win next year so if you are standing or not please stay tuned for ways in which you can get involved and shape the campaign.
Please let us know:
- What level of work you are able to put into standing
- Which ward you live in
- Which ward you would prefer to stand in
- Your membership number
