MUCH DONE, MUCH MORE TO DO - AN AWFUL LOT TO LOSE

Dear Neighbour

Over the last four years our borough has been led by our local Labour team.

These are challenging times but there’s much we’ve done: we’ve hired the best lawyers and health advisers in the country to join our fight to save Charing Cross Hospital. We’ve put the largest amount of council-funded police onto the streets in our borough’s history and we are the only administration in London to cut council tax over the last four years.

We know people sometimes think politicians are all the same and we understand why. But since our residents elected us into office in 2014 we have been striving to prove we’re different - by our deeds, not words.

Here on May 3 there is a real and stark choice. For many decades now our borough has only ever elected Labour or Conservative councillors.

The Conservatives are hoping you’ll forget what they did last time, so they can do it all again. So just a quick reminder of some of the things Conservative councillors did when they ran Hammersmith & Fulham just 4 years ago: 
We know that if we lose our hospital, our parks and our genuinely affordable homes, we will never get them back.

In 2014 the residents of our borough chose a different path.

Our Labour councillors were determined to make our residents proud:  starting with a tough approach to property developers negotiating a record £310 million for local people from them. We have sought to be ruthlessly efficient with taxpayers’ money by cutting £70 million of wasteful council spending. And we have built partnerships with residents, businesses and local institutions so we can get more things done together. 
We are seeking to run a different kind of council, one that listens more and works with our residents to find smarter, more creative ways to take us forward. The Conservatives will just take us back.

The outcome of your vote on 3 May will have a huge impact on our borough and this neighbourhood for the next four years. There is so much to lose.

So please vote for all 3 Labour candidates. We promise we won’t let you down.

Best wishes

Iain Cassidy, Christabel Cooper, Guy Vincent
