West End South Local Election Hustings

Following the format and success of Eastleigh Central Local Election Hustings 2022, we aim to run a similar one for West End South.

This will run with the same format, rules, guidance as Eastleigh Central. The questions will be based on the Eastleigh Central question canvass as the questions from residents are similar.

Candidates in West End will have a slight advantage over Eastleigh Central as they will be able to see the video example already set by Eastleigh Central residents. This won’t cause bias in the election as they are standing in very different areas.

West End South Candidates


  • Closure and finalising questions: 8pm Sunday 24th April
  • Final date for candidates to get videos sent in by: 12 noon Saturday 30th April
  • Target video release: 1st May.

Video may be released sooner if all candidates respond!


NB: Yet to be confirmed / changed.

Feedback and Suggestions

As always, I’m interested in any and all feedback so that we can improve and make this better. This really is a brilliant opportunity to help people choose the best person they feel represents their views.

@Tracy_Weeks and Jerry are committed and I expect their videos soon.

No response from Janice and I contacted her a week ago at her borough council email address (she’s a currently standing borough councillor). I struggle to find any other contact email addresses.

Steve Willougby has said interested, but not committed.

I’ve not received any videos from any candidates yet, but the sooner the better as we can get on and prepare/release the video. :slight_smile:

Contact Update:

  • @Tracy_Weeks (Green) is expecting to provide video responses today.
  • Jerry Hall (Conservative) is hopefully providing videos today (updated via @LisaCrosher).
  • Steve Willoughby (Labour) hasn’t yet committed, @DazzaRPD has been chasing.
  • Janice Asman is yet to respond at all. (Tried via her eastleigh.gov.uk email address for 2 weeks since the 13th Apr), does not seem active?

Awesome Thanks! As you’re the 2nd to fully submit you get dibs on your position in the video! Do you want to go second or last? :slight_smile:

Last please. Most videos are mp4 some are mov, hope that’s not a problem.

No problem at all, well done by the way! So great to see almost all of you all taking part! :slight_smile:

The video is ready and will premier at 8pm tonight!
