What do you love about London?

The Mayoral election on 3 May comes at a critical time. Londoners are going through one of the toughest periods in recent memory. Despite this, there are signs of progress coming from the fresh and honest approach. The same fresh-thinking that has delivered the world's most successful bike hire scheme.

Boris's determination to end the waste and mismanagement of the previous Mayor has freed up the money to pay for a strong plan for our future - helping to keep London the greatest city in the world.

Our campaign to get Boris re-elected is built on ordinary Londoners from across the city and we want to know what you love about your city.

Help pass Boris's council tax cut

Families in London are feeling the financial pressure. That's why Boris Johnson is working hard to keep a lid on the prices he controls whenever he can. It's why he stopped Ken Livingstone's £25 tax on family cars and ended 8 years of council tax hikes which cost the average family almost £1,000.

Now, Boris is fighting to cut council tax in his proposed budget as part of his plan to invest in Greater London's future, and he needs your help to ensure that it gets passed.

Phone canvassing Enfield North

On Thursday we called over 1,000 homes in Enfield North from the BackBoris2012 call centre. Yes, 1,000 homes in our constituency, a key priority for the Mayoral elections and a marginal that we are permanently campaigning in.

With 30 canvassers hitting the phones, over a two and a half hour period we covered homes in all of our target wards, learning about residents key concerns and hearing a heartening level of support for Boris. There was also a large level of hostility raised to the Labour council's ridiculous introduction of Sunday parking charges, showing that our local campaigning is resonating with voters.

If you're an Australian, Greater London needs you!

On this wonderful day - and for those unsure why the 26th of January is so special, let me enlighten you - it's Australia Day. As an Australian living and working in London, I'm proudly celebrating, and expecting many other across Hammersmith, Clapham and Shoreditch are too!

And this year I have a more serious message for all the other Australians in the capital - you're eligible to vote in this May's Mayoral election. It is not only British citizens who have a say over how this great city is run, but qualifying Londoners from across the Commonwealth.

Weekend campaigning in Beckenham

This weekend saw over 40 street stalls and action days right across the capital. Boris Backers were out on the streets telling Londoners about Mayor Johnson's commitment to keeping their council tax frozen for an unprecedented fourth year in a row.

At our street stall in Beckenham we had a great turnout of activists, councillors and our local MP and the people we encountered were really responsive.

Boris: Join uniformed groups to gain skills

Mayor Johnson today unveiled a new programme to boost job prospects for thousands of young Londoners and steer them away from crime.

In plans outlined during a visit to the Merton Sea Cadets Centre, thousands of young Londoners will have the chance to join uniformed groups like the Guides, Scouts and Cadets, helping them develop vital skills and instil discipline and responsibility. The programme, run by the Safer London Foundation, is aimed at young people particularly at risk of being excluded from education, training or employment.

Help Boris deliver 4th council tax freeze

Londoners voted for Boris as their Mayor on the promise of providing value for money and keeping your taxes low.

And he has delivered. Boris has frozen his share of your council tax for 3 years in a row. This has helped many Londoners who suffered 8 years of rises under Ken Livingstone, costing the average household almost £1,000.

Mayor Johnson has now published his draft budget so you can see exactly where your money is going to be spent.

Again he wants to freeze your council tax - for the fourth year in a row.
