This petition has NOT been created by Andrew Curtin or any of his affiliates. This petition has come directly from the community. A community that are angry that our votes and support have been taken for granted and undermined. This is not about party politics, it’s about democracy.
London North East Conservatives: Reinstate Andrew Curtin, Cabinet Member for Culture in Havering as a candidate in the 2014 local elections. Explain why a Councillor of such calibre has been deselected in such an undemocratic manner.
Whether you are a Havering resident or a Conservative voter shouldn't matter. This is a fight for a man that has worked hard for his community for over 15 years. Andrew is not only a key figure within Romford but has done inspirational work for the artistic community of Havering. He has paved the way for innovation and grassroots activities whilst protecting traditional values. Andrew isn't a hands off Councillor who can't find the time to remember your name or answer your calls. Invite him to an event and he will sit on the floor next to all the artists, engage in conversation and appreciate culture with everyone else. He is also one of the only Councillors to have taken a voluntary pay cut.
Andrew was thrown out as a candidate of the Havering Conservative party. Why?! Well no one can seem to give an honest or reasonable explanation. With accusations of rigged ballots we, as riled residents are not only fighting for someone who has supported our community but we are demanding that our local Council demonstrates transparency and honest democracy!
Please sign this petition in support of Councillor Andrew Curtin. We believe he has earnt the right to stand in the 2014 elections - and if the people deem him deserving enough he can serve his community with his usual inspiring and committed ways!
