Merton Councillor Campaigns for Obama

Peter Walker joins Nevada team on the trail

Merton Councillor Peter Walker took time off during his summer holidays to join the campaign for the re-election of Barack Obama.

He worked out of the Los Angeles campaign HQ contacting voters in the swing state of Nevada which covers Las Vegas.

Peter Walker (left) said:  "I was privileged to join in this important election. I believe the re-election of Obama is not just important for the USA, but also for the future of our children, as it will have a vital impact on the role the US plays in addressing climate change”.

"The campaign office had a real buzz about it and I met with a lot of really good people who were getting involved for the first time in their lives.”

"I found a lot of enthusiasm for Obama from those I contacted. I just hope his campaign is successful as the one I last helped in when I assisted his 2008 campaign out of Virginia."
