This morning I was over in Lewisham helping with Janet Hurst’s campaign in the Whitefoot by-election. Janet’s one of those fabulous people who combines a great record helping others get elected with doing lovely stuff in her own community. Combined that makes for a powerful reason for other Liberal Democrats to return some of the many favours we owe Janet in order to help get her elected on Thursday.
As the press release about Janet Hurst’s selection says:
Janet was born and bred in Lewisham, having been a resident in the ward for over 30 years. She is an active member of the community, a member of St Mark’s Church, founder of the Friends of the Woodland Walk, until recently a Governor at a local primary school and she helped to organise the successful Big Jubilee Lunch this summer for the local assembly.
Helping out is always more fun when you know it’s a well run campaign, and the leaflets artworked by Vijay Naidu are up to his usual excellent standards too. The dogs were all even politely noisy well in advance of the door being reached and the cats all suitably cute. (I suspect they knew I had a smartphone on me and were trying to inducing me into putting a photo of them on the internet.)
Polling day is this Thursday (11th October).
