Maddy Raman has been chosen as the local Labour Party’s candidate for the Hampstead Town by-election on Thursday 27 September 2012. The vacancy arose when one of the most capable Tory councillors in Camden decided to step down to move to America.
Key issues in the campaign will be:
- local opposition to the Lib Dem/Tory government’s top-down re-organisation of the NHS, which affects the local Royal Free hospital
- Tory plans to close down and sell-off Hampstead police station
- supporting Hampstead’s vibrant High Street amidst the double-dip recession
Maddy Raman said, “Living locally on South Hill Park, I know what matters to residents in Hampstead Town.
“My wife and I live next door to, and use, the shops of South End Green. I want to do all I can to help them survive in these tough economic times.
