Statement to voters
Hello, my name is Claire van Helfteren. I’m your neighbour, I live just off the Portobello Road and I would very much like to represent you and our neighbourhood as an Advance Together Counciller in the Council.
I’m passionate about individuals and opportunity, particularly for young people in the borough. I believe Portobello Market and Notting Hill Carnival are the borough’s cultural heritage and need more support from the Council in order to remain world class in quality as well as fame.
I’m married with two grown up kids and I’ve lived in the borough for the past 9 years. For the last 5 years I’ve been mediating gun and knife crime across London and previously I’ve run a branch of Samaritans and worked for Citizens Advice Bureau. I know how the right support can change lives and put families and local businesses on the right track.
I believe that local politics is not about political parties, but about getting good people into Council. I am a European and strongly support the EU expat community in our borough. Please vote for me and the Advance Together party in the local Council election.
