The second MEP candidate joined Hertsmere labour this week as part of their door step campaign.

Alex Mayer, second on the European list for East of England, joined the team to canvas support before next week’s election.

She joined Borehamwood candidates Richard Butler, Leon Reefe and Najaf Raza on Monday morning.

Councillor Richard Butler said the day went really well: “We spoke to a lot of residents and people seemed really willing to listen and consider our message. I still think turnout may be lower this year then it will be next year with the general election, which concerns me.

“It was a really interesting experience- I was surprised as so many people wanted to talk about the big national issues that are really worrying them.”
