Penny Wrout for Victoria Ward
Penny Wrout for Victoria Ward

I’ve been a proud Hackney resident since the

early 90s and I’ve lived in Victoria Ward for 13

years. I love it, but I’m also aware of problems

locally. I see a growing wealth gap, and the efect

that has on housing and homelessness is of huge

concern, with local people priced out.


My daughter’s primary education was in the

ward and I fought for our new secondary school.

I see the quality and special character of our

schools threatened by government austerity. I’m

also worried about air quality, with main roads

running though Victoria to the motorway.


This by-election is a great opportunity to work

with local people, building on Hackney Labour’s

ideas to tackle these issues but it’s also a moment

to hear residents’ concerns. My professional life

has been spent working to increase diversity in

the media. I’m really keen to speak for Victoria

Ward and ensure our voice is heard.

Vote for your Labour candidate in Victoria Ward on Thursday 18th October
