Hello everybody hope you are all well
I stood in South Twickenham in the Richmond Borough council elections in may, here is the result:
elected: Claire Head-Conservative-1,498
not elected:Matthew Hull-Liberal Democrat-1,264
Steven Topol-Liberal Democrat-1,260
Michael Butlin-Liberal Democrat-1,246
There was a 5% swing from Conservative to Liberal Democrat. The Labour vote was halved.
The candidate statement about me in the election literature said:
"Matthew Hull- Born 11th October 1974. I was educated at Blundells School, Tiverton, Devon. I have a BSC Hons degree in Politics from Plymouth University. I joined the Liberal Democrats in 1991 and have been active in the party since then, for ten years in Devon and for the last five years in Twickenham.
Have worked at the National Archives at Kew as a quality assessor of historical documents. Have worked at the Home Office as a visiting officer for asylum seekers in London. More recently have been working in the financial industry.
Have already been out delivering literature and talking to people about the issues that concern them in preparation for mays elections."
warm regards Matt
