Cllr Sharon Patrick

"I am endorsing Phil as I've worked closely with him as Vice Chair of Living in Hackney and been impressed by his depth of knowledge and his passion for the rights of all tenants in the Borough. Whether they are living in social housing or the private sector, he has striven to improve their conditions. He's worked extremely hard to make sure that Hackney builds as many new council homes as we can afford, despite there being no Government money to build new homes and has thought up creative ways of doing this. 

"I was impressed by the way he lead the campaign against the Housing and Planning Act and was able to bring in people at all levels from the House of Lords to council tenants at public meetings and demonstrations.
"Phil responded to my concern as ward councillor when I told him about the anger and frustration of tenants who had been left out of the Decent Homes programme, but were living with broken kitchens. He recently attend a public meeting in the ward to announce a programme of new kitchens and bathrooms and also the building of new council homes in Kings Park.

"I've known and worked with Phil Glanville since we were both elected in 2006. We served together as group officers. He's always been a very encouraging and supportive colleague.

"But most recently he took on Housing which must be the most demanding role in Hackney. He's already overseen Hackney Homes coming back in-house and begun to make significant service improvements.

"Most directly I've seen his work on delivering housing regeneration schemes which will provides thousands of new homes in Hackney. In our case a scheme stalled for many years, is now finally delivering.

"I truly believe he would make the best next Mayor."
Cllr Ian Rathbone
Leabidge Ward
"Phil is a very approachable person, open to new ideas and criticism. He has a human touch. He’s a ‘warm’ person. We need someone like this who can reach out to our communities who they can feel will listen sympathetically to their needs, who will come and meet them where they are. And who will take action rather than just talk words. "

"I worked with Phil in my years as Cabinet Member and he has been consistently impressive. 

"The impact of housing quality on wellbeing - of both children and adults - is consistently underplayed in policy discourse. Phil's expertise, passion and record of delivery in this area will redress the balance. 

"Maintaining a diverse, socially mixed and cohesive Hackney matters to me. The part played by housing, tenure and quality is critical to securing the kind of Hackney I value. Phil is the candidate best placed to deliver. 

"Phil's record of engaging with, listening to, and genuinely hearing all of Hackney is second to none. I believe Phil to be the best of four good candidates standing to be the Labour Mayor of Hackney."

Alex Kuye
Vice Chair of De Beauvoir ward & BAME officer for Hackney South CLP
"I am so proud to be supporting Philip Glanville to be our next Mayor for Hackney. I’ve lived in Hackney all my life and as a young man who was born and raised here, I can see myself staying in Hackney because of Phil.

"Working with Phil I have seen the positives in De Beauvoir when it comes to regeneration and new social housing for people who need it the most. As a police officer I know the benefits of having a safer, cleaner and greener Hackney. Phil is the only candidate who I believe is authentic and can offer a coherent policy programme that works. He is the change that we need to win the next election and transform Hackney for the better. Having listened and talked to all the Mayoral candidates, I am convinced that the person who most effectively meets the challenge is Philip Glanville."
Humaira Garasia
Branch Secretary, Leabridge Ward and Youth Officer for Hackney North
"I am glad to be supporting Philip Glanville to be the next mayor of Hackney.

"I truly believe that Philip will work with the young people of through Hackney Youth parliament, to ensure that our voices are heard when it comes to decisions impacting us. 

"The young people of Hackney need a Mayor who will work with us and for us. Ensuring that we flourish with our borough."

Haggerston Ward member and Unite Union activist 
"I'm backing Phil to be our next Mayor of Hackney. Phil is open and approachable and is the best candidate to keep the Hackney Labour Party strong and united.

"Phil has worked closely with Unite union in our campaigns in Hackney. Phil worked hard to ensure a dozen Building Apprentices unfairly dismissed by a Hackney Contractor were compensated and found new jobs. 

"Phil was pivotal during the St Mungos housing dispute in stopping zero-hours and the casualisation of staff. I have absolutely no doubt that the interests of working people in Hackney are best served with Philip Glanville as Mayor."

Ian Nelthorpe
Branch Secretary, Hoxton West
"It's important for the left to endorse a candidate who has a proven record in leading the number one concern for our members - HOUSING. That's why I am backing Phil for Mayor. "
Cllr Paul Merry
Labour Councillor, Redbridge
"I worked for Cabinet Member Cllr Phil Glanville for 5 years in Hackney. He was the most capable and committed Housing Cabinet Member I worked with for over 26 years. 

"Now I am retired and a Labour Councillor in Redbridge, but I will be working for Cllr Phil's campaign."
Justina Cruickshank
Women's Officer, Hackney North CLP and Vice Chair, Dalston Branch
"Jules Pipe has left some mighty big shoes to fill, but by asking Phil to be the Acting Deputy Mayor, when Sophie Linden moved to the GLA, he effectively selected Phil to take up this honour. 

"Phil is sincere, geniune and has a fantastic passion for Hackney. 

"His ideas for a small business forum are excellent. Phil has a good understanding of the issues facing young people and the underemployed who have previously not been able to tap into all the opportunities that Hackney has to offer and he also has proposals to help them. These ideas surrounding improving work and skills for local people are extremely perceptive and welcome. 

Phil is of course a housing expert and as this is one of the biggest issues facing Hackney, I have doubt that he is the person to continue his already good work and lead on tackling it. 

Lastly, Phil is personable and it's important that he has said he will be a visible Mayor. I believe he is someone who will listen and who will be accountable - not dodging questions but really being there for local people. "

Gulfidan Karakas
Student and Haggerston Labour Party Member
"Beyond a doubt, Philip Glanville is the most credible candidate to stand for Major of Hackney. His passion for politics alongside his hard work will make a more equal and prospering Hackney. "
Cllr Vincent Carroll
Labour Councillor, Haringey (but born and raised on Dalston Lane)
"I support Phil Because he's a highly effective practical socialist. As Cabinet Member for Housing he's been up against the most acute problem facing the borough and the city. Phil has built a formidable reputation across London as someone who always gets the best deal for the people of Hackney, and I'm sure he would continue that as Mayor."
