In 2008, Herschel  campaigned in  Victoria Street back  with the "No extended Clearway”  campaign.

This year he is running  for Richmond Council.   Victoria street traders will support his initiatives and campaign in making our Victoria street a better place to live, shop, work and play too.

We have asked him to have few words about him to our traders as few of you might see him from some of the recent campaign for Victoria Street.
