On walkabout in Romford today with Boris. There is a really positive feeling about the campaign and people were delighted to see the candidate. Before lunch we paused for Boris to be interviewed by waiting journalists and photographed with Ruby Cooke, the newly crowned 'Face of Essex'.
I am the Conservative member of the London Assembly elected for the Essex/East London seat of Havering & Redbridge, and former Leader of the Conservative group at City Hall. I speak regularly to local organisations about London government and my experience as a councillor. I also offer coaching and advice to prospective candidates. In October 2007 I published my novel, Gremal Quest - a treasure hunt around - and beneath - the streets of London.
