Let the right one in

On the Green Ladywell blog, Cllr Sue Luxton has revealed the Green Party's candidate to replace departing Cllr Mike Keogh in the Council elections next May. We don't know Cllr Keogh, but here's what Sue says about his successor:

I'm delighted to introduce Charlotte Dingle as our third candidate for Ladywell. Charlotte lives in the ward and has been an active local Green Party member for some time. In her day job she is the editor of a magazine for lesbian and bisexual women and her hobbies include morris dancing, drawing and playing the guitar. She also has a keen interest in animal rights. If elected, I suspect she may well be Lewisham's first vegan, morris-dancing, goth councillor!

Elsewhere on the blog, Sue is currently conducting a poll about whether solar panels should be permitted on the roofs of Lewisham's conservation areas (correct answer: yes). So please head over there to vote - you have another 5 days from today.
