Seven Sisters by-election – Wards Corner backing for David Schmitz

As the Seven Sisters by-election enters its final full week of campaigning, Liberal Democrat candidate David Schmitz has received a major boost, with the support of the President of the Wards Corner Market Traders.

David Schmitz has campaigned for months to protect the site, despite Labour-run Haringey Council’s plan to bulldoze the area, and the Conservative betrayal of Mayor Boris Johnson, who promised to help, but who now says the controversial and unpopular development is “to be welcomed”.

Raul Mancera, President of the Puelito Paisa (Wards Corner Market Traders), says of David Schmitz:

“The attitude of Haringey Council under Labour towards our market has shown how little they respect our area and its people. David Schmitz has been a good friend to us – offering us free legal advice throughout the campaign to stop the demolition of Wards Corner and the destruction of our Latin American market. Please vote for him in the Seven Sisters by-election on the 15th of January.”

David Schmitz comments:

“I am very pleased to have received Raul’s support, and the campaign is really building momentum as we enter the final full week of campaigning.Only the Liberal Democrats can challenge Labour in Haringey, and I am delighted how many people are now coming over to us.”
