Alexander Ellis has been selected to be the London North East Assembly candidate (incorporating the boroughs of Islington, Hackney and Waltham Forest). Atiq Malik, Ellie Hopkins and David Vaiani were the runners up at the selection meeting in late June.
Alexander has lived and worked locally in London for the past fifteen years. He lives in Hackney, is a local school governor, Chairman of the school finance committee and is committed to try and improve the lot of the average hard pressed resident of London North East. Having been a constituency officer and activist in both Islington and Hackney he has knocked on thousands of doors over the years and knows the concerns of local residents. His main priority is to bring common sense to the governance of London and to ensure that a man like Livingstone does not represent London over the next four years in the run up to 2012.
