Alexandra ward by-election – Liberal Democrats pick popular school governor Nigel Scott

The Liberal Democrats have selected popular campaigner Nigel Scott to fight the Alexandra Ward by-election scheduled for 9th October. Nigel has lived in Haringey since 1991, and has been active in the community and the Liberal Democrats for many years. He almost unseated Labour Leader George Meehan at the last local elections.

An experienced local school governor, Nigel Scott has chaired the Board of Governors at Bounds Green School, where his own kids attended.He is also a founding governor of Alexandra Park School, where he still serves.As a parent, he campaigned for the school, in the heart of Alexandra ward, to be opened.

Nigel has worked for a patient health charity for over ten years and is also chair of the Skin Care Campaign – a national umbrella organisation pressing for better services for dermatology patients.

Nigel is also a tough campaigner on local planning issues, consistently opposing overdevelopment of the borough, and campaigning on traffic and road safety issues.

Nigel Scott comments:

“I am thrilled to have been chosen for the by-election, and I will be campaigning hard to win.

“We certainly need action on traffic.I also will want to play a part in steering the iconic Ally Pally away from the disastrous mismanagement of the Labour years and its multi-million pound bill to local residents.

“Wayne Hoban will be a tough act to follow. There is a lot to do, but I would relish getting stuck in.”

Local MP Lynne Featherstone adds:

“Ever since I started campaigning for the Liberal Democrats in Haringey, I have campaigned with Nigel. He is a fantastic choice, and has a great track record.I am looking forward to campaigning with him in the weeks ahead.”
