Campaigning Liberal Democrat candidate David Schmitz has published his ‘Seven pledges for Seven Sisters’ – the seven key issues that will form his top priorities if elected on 15th January.
David Schmitz’s seven pledges are:
1.Push for a full enquiry into the state of Haringey’s Children’s Services and the death of Baby P – no more Labour cover-ups
2.Freeze Council Tax – give hard working families a break from rising bills.
3.Halt the privatisation of the Laurels Health clinic – let local people have their say.
4.Keep in touch all year round – and listen to local people
5.Save Wards Corner – don’t let Labour bulldoze our market.
6.More police on our streets – Labour are planning to reduce police numbers.
7.Clear up local grot spots – crack down on overflowing bins, graffiti, litter and dumping.
David Schmitz has been the most active of the challengers to Haringey Labour. Haringey Council is run by Labour, with 32 councillors to the Liberal Democrats 25. No other party has any councillors.
“I have spent much of the last few weeks talking to local residents and asking them about their concerns,” says David Schmitz. “These seven priorities form the heart of my campaign, but I am finding lots of issues on the doorstep. I want to hear from local people about all the issues that matter to them, right down to their own street.”
