General Election 2010: you ask the questions

You ask the questions on Monday 26 April

On Monday 26 April the Hackney Citizen will be holding a question and answer session with the candidates for the parliamentary constituencies of Hackney North and Stoke Newington, and Hackney South and Shoreditch.

This is an opportunity for you to put your questions to the candidates on the issues that matter most to you.

It might be health, education, crime, the economy or something else entirely.

We will put the best of your questions to the candidates. Their answers will be posted on our website, and you will then have an opportunity to ask follow-up questions.

Candidates will be invited to respond to questions from Monday 26 April until the day before the election, Wednesday 5 May 2010.

So get in touch and have a say in what our politicians need to do for us if they want our vote.

Send your name, contact details and questions to us at elections@hackneycitizen.co.uk before 5pm Sunday 25 April.



Real news stories don't come cheap.

The Hackney Citizen is the borough’s only independent newspaper, and is now in its tenth year.

Our hard-hitting journalism has uncovered fire safety failures in tower blocks, revealed plans to criminalise rough sleepers, exposed dodgy letting agents and reported on many other issues of public concern.

We’ve always been totally free in print and online, but advertising revenues are falling.

That’s why we’re asking for your help.

Hackney Citizen’s high quality journalism is produced by a small team on a shoestring budget, so we’re asking you to make a monthly contribution to fund our work, enabling the paper to survive and thrive.

Support the Hackney Citizen from as little as £2 per month.
