Who is Standing in the Wormholt and White City By-election?
Meet the men who hope to get your vote on February 7
There are six candidates standing for election as councillor in Wormholt and White City ward on Thursday.
The by-election in the north of Shepherd's Bush has been caused by sad death of Councillor Jean Campbell in November.
The polling day for the by-election to fill the vacant seat on the council is Thursday February 7, 2013.
Here are the candidates hoping to be elected.
Max Schmid (Labour Party)
Max is 29 and lives in Parsons Green. He works for an environmental charity and
is a governor at Queensmill School for autistic children.
" I will campaign to defend the people in this ward and work for better outcomes for all that live there. Jean Campbell wanted to see so much done in this area and it will be my privilege to carry on working to bring about the changes she cared for so much should I be elected."
Jamie McKittrick (Conservative Party)
Chris Whittaker (Liberal Democrats)
He says: "I welcome this opportunity to stand up for my neighbours and my local community. The people of Wormholt & White City are being taken for granted by Labour and ignored altogether by the Conservatives. If elected I promise to put local residents first, and will focus in particular on improving facilities for families and young people such as Wormholt Park."
"Our pledges to introduce free nursery care and a £900 per head Pupil Premium have helped Wormholt & White City schools more than any other part of our borough, and our policy of raising tax allowances to £10,000 is helping more people into work."
Andrew Elston (UKIP)
He says: " Vote for UKIP and I will challenge the other parties in Council for you, in the way that only UKIP can.
" I will fight for priority to be given to local residents over the White City redevelopment. To help local shops and businesses I will fight for the introduction of 20 minute Free Parking Zones. I will fight for Police numbers to be maintained to help reduce crime that blights the lives of local people. I will fight for better local health provision so people do not have to travel across London for treatment.
"UKIP can make a difference .We are real challengers to the other parties. Vote for UKIP and join this challenge. A vote for UKIP can make them all sit up and take notice that our citizens can and will speak up."
There are two more candidates in the By-election - White City resident
Jeffrey Boateng, who stands as an independent, and British National Party's Andrew Donald, who lives in Fulham.
Poll cards will be delivered between February 1 and 3. Poll cards are for information only and residents do not need their card to vote, as long as they are registered.
