Carla Battisti, Westside presenter, said:
“I’m so excited about these debates – there have been so
many contentious issues over the past year and this provides the perfect platform for the local
community to put their questions to elected representatives in the week running up to the general
''Our election coverage will ensure that you don’t end up in the polling booth scratching your head. You
only have one chance to make your voice heard, so use it well – and if you happen to find yourself
falling victim to ‘voter apathy’, just remember: if you don’t vote, you don’t have a say.”
The election specials will be broadcast live between 6-8pm every day during the week commencing
26 April on Westside 89.6FM or via www.westsideradio.co.uk.
If you have a question to put to the panel, please email it in advance to email@example.com or
