Further to the piece about our campaign for an elected executive leader (executive mayor) being published in the local editions of The Gazette, The Hillingdon English Democrats would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have been in touch via the website offering their assistance.
It has been commented upon that it would be far easier for people to sign up on line, but unfortunately the legislation in place requires that the petition be done in the traditional way, by signatures on a paper petition form – Hence the links on the site to print this form off. If any of our site visitors would like us to print off copies of the form to gain signatures, please let me know via the contact page and I will arrange for these to be despatched to you.
Can I also take this opportunity to thank The Gazette for their article, and also for the poll that they are conducting on line this week to gauge support for an elected mayor – This currently stands at healthily north of 60% in favour, and merely serves to underline the feeling in the Borough that residents really need to be consulted on the things that matter to us.
With 2010 almost up, I would like to wish all of the residents of Hillingdon a very happy and prosperous new year – May 2011 bring you all that you hope for yourselves, friends and family
