Mike Freer MP – A local champion for Finchley and Golders Green

Whilst most MP's expect their constituents to come to them, Mike is going to meet the people. We've raised money to buy Mike a battle bus so he can hold his constituency surgeries in places convenient to his constituents. MP's in rural areas have been doing this for years, but we believe it is a first for a London MP.

Barnet Conservatives Leadership challenge

The Friends of Freer note with interest that a Leadership battle is brewing for Mikes old job. This looks likely to be an interesting contest between two highly talented candidates. We urge all our friends who are councillors to consider the choices very carefully before making any decision. It would be most unfair of the Friends of Freer to come out in support of either of these great Councillors. We trust the good sense of all concerned to do their homework and make the right decision.

Former Council Leader Brian Salinger pays tribute to Mike

Former Leader of Barnet Council, Councillor Brian Salinger spoke to the Hendon Times today, acknowledging the superb job done by Mike as Leader of Barnet Council. He told them :-

"[Former council leader] Victor Lyon, myself and Mike Freer, worked very hard to raise the profile of Barnet in the local government world. We had taken Barnet to a level where it was regarded as one of the best local authorities in the country"

When people who have done the job make such comments, it is high praise. It is good to see Mike finally geting the recognition he deserves for the great job he did as Leader of Barnet Council.
