On Thursday 12th April, our local candidate Thomas Clarke for Romford Town did a fantastic job of representing the view of our local Liberal Democrat candidates across Havering at Romford Recorder’s Facebook Live Hustings event. This is what Thomas said about the event:
It was great to attend the Hustings organised by the Recorder on Thursday evening, it was an hour-long debate between some of the candidates from around the borough ahead of the local elections on May 3rd.
I would like to say thank you to the other candidates who attended the event, and turned it into such an insightful evening. It was particularly disappointing that the Conservatives, once again, failed to turn up and support the event, blaming a transport issue.
The party failed to appear in any debates before last year’s general election and to once again miss out and dodge being asked questions by the people of Havering was a big disappointment.
I really enjoyed being given the chance to answer questions from the public, who sent them in on the Recorder’s Twitter and Facebook channels, and hope that I was able to get across a little bit more about the Havering Liberal Democrats and myself.
We’d like to extend our thanks as a group to Romford Recorder for hosting this valuable opportunity for local residents to hear directly from some of their candidates.
