|Former Conservative Councillor Backs Lib Dem Candidate|
Susan John-Richards has joined the Lib Dems & thrown her support behind Lisa Smart
"The Conservatives on Wandsworth Council should be ashamed of themselves. Making local children pay to play in our parks is not something I would have supported during my time as a Conservative councillor, no matter how hard the party bosses were pushing” said Ms John-Richards (pictured left with Lisa Smart).
She continued, “It is very clear that the Conservatives in Wandsworth are taking their support for granted. Their councillors nod through high rise developments and other unsuitable planning proposals and completely ignore the views of their constituents.
“I am clear that Wandsworth needs a real alternative voice in the Town Hall. Lisa is exactly the sort of independent-minded, strong local voice Putney deserves. The residents of Thamesfield now have the opportunity to elect a hard-working local councillor in the by-election on 30th June and I can think of no finer local candidate than Lisa Smart.”
