HAZEL MUST GO CANDIDATE SELECTION
 

Star date: 4th February 2010 

PUBLIC MEETING TO CHOOSE WHO STANDS AGAINST HAZEL BLEARS IN THE GENERAL ELECTION
7pm Thursday 4th February
The Old Pint Pot Pub, Adelphi Street, off The Crescent, Salford M3 6EN

Tonight the Hazel Must Go! campaign is holding a public meeting to elect a candidate to stand against Hazel Blears in the forthcoming General Election.

Over the last nine months the Campaign has been holding public meetings, leafleting and generally highlighting why Hazel has to stand down as MP for Salford. She won't go, so a Hazel Must Go! candidate will stand against her.  Tonight anyone from Salford can turn up and help to choose the person to represent the Campaign…

Full story here…


HAZEL MUST GO! PUBLIC MEETING

The Hazel Must Go! campaign tonight holds its public meeting to decide a candidate to stand in the General Election for the Salford and Eccles constituency. Three people have put themselves forward and there will be a vote to decide the final choice.

"The people of Salford will have an historic opportunity to vote for the candidate our campaign will be supporting in this year's General Election" says Campaign secretary Steven North "Rather than holding a secret meeting at the Town Hall, we are inviting the general public to come along and have their say."

Following advice in a talk by Martin Bell at a previous meeting, guest speaker tonight will be former MP Dave Nellist, who was Labour MP for Coventry South East from 1983-1992, and who took a worker's wage during his time in Parliament. He will speak about corruption in politics and how to start to build alternatives to the main political parties.

The three candidates who will be up for the vote tonight are Rachel Cavendish, David Henry and Alec McFadden.

The Three Potential Candidates…

Rachel Cavendish – Community Campaigner and Environmental Activist

"I have lived in Salford since the 1980's when I moved here from the USA. I believe passionately in a strong NHS and in fighting for public services. Having worked with some of the most vulnerable people in Salford for much of my life I am committed to social justice. I am passionate about the environment and beyond that I believe that the "Charter for Salford" drawn up by the Hazel Must Go Campaign is a list of demands that would benefit the people of this city."

David Henry – Youth Campaigner and Community Activist

"As someone who lives in Salford I have seen first hand the hypocrisy Hazel Blears has shown towards the people of this city. Her failings and the failings of the mainstream political parties have only increased my passion for tackling social inequality and exploitation.

For 15 years I have fought for the rights of young people, voluntary workers and those marginalised within our communities. I am committed to helping rebuild a sense of community within Salford and would oppose those who seek to divide us. I am passionate about grass roots politics, but also feel that ordinary people need to be given the chance to vote for candidates who will represent and support them properly. If chosen to stand I hope to do this"

Alec McFadden -Trade Union Activist and Anti-Racist Campaigner

"I am a single parent, an active trade unionist, as well as a community activist, socialist and anti racist and I have agreed to stand as a candidate in the forthcoming General Election.
The present Labour Party Member of Parliament, Hazel Blears has brought Salford and the Labour Party into disrepute by making false financial Parliamentary expenses claims, acting in a hypocritical manner when she voted, in Cabinet, to close maternity units across Britain.  She then tried to join the campaign to save the Hope Hospital Maternity Unit and failed to understand, or share the needs or aspirations, of the people of Salford."
