Interview with Veronica Ward

In Dulwich OnView, new content on August 3, 2010 at 1:31 pm

Last week I had the chance to interview Veronica Ward, the cabinet member on Southwark Council responsible for culture, leisure, sport and the Olympics. The resulting article is live on Dulwich OnView today.

I asked the councillor about the swtich over from a Tory/Lib Dem council to a Labour administration (the opposite of the national political landscape) and her hopes for the future. It also turns out that she’s also passionate about the preservation of the velodrome at Herne Hill. And there’s news that the debate about what to do with the closed down Livesey Museum is still wide open. Do read the artcile and leave a comment if you feel strongly about either of the those issues.

This is the second political interview I’ve conducted for DOV. Last year I got to interview Ward’s predecessor Lewis Robinson, who is now out of a job in the cabinet after the change of power.
