Statement to voters
Joe Richards, having lived in the area for the past decade, and growing up in a strong Liberal Democrat borough, is passionate about bringing as much local power to the people of Hackney North and Stoke Newington as possible, working to keep the local economy thriving, providing decent jobs, housing and a higher standard of living for residents.
As one of the strongest Remain boroughs in the UK, with a 78.5% remain vote in Hackney, Joe is firmly behind Liberal Democrat policy of demanding a referendum on the terms of Brexit.
Joe also understands the need to protect important local social spaces, to protect communities in Hackney from over-development, and to protect the rights of young people to have an equal start in life.
Joe is the co-founder of a local charity based in East London committed to making economics accessible, and has worked with local residents, schools and workplaces to start new discussions of what our local economy could be, and to encourage everybody to shape our own futures.
