In May we face a crucial mayoral election in Watford. After 16 years in the role, Dorothy Thornhill will be standing down. Peter Taylor, her deputy, is the Lib Dem candidate and we will be doing everything we can to make sure that he can build on our record of achievement in the town.
We would be delighted to welcome any supporters or members to this action day. Any newbies will be trained up and paired with a more experienced campaigner. There will be a morning canvassing session (10 - 12), lunch and an afternoon session (1 - 3). You are very welcome to join us for either or both sessions.
