With politicians often being accused of being ‘on the fiddle’, Isleworth will have the chance to elect one that freely admits to it.

South African born David Juritz has toured the world as a solo violinist and was a member of the English Chamber Orchestra before being appointed leader of the London Mozart Players, a position he held until 2010. He still performs regularly including with the London Tango Quintet and is regularly invited to perform on film and television soundtracks including solo violin in Long Walk to Freedom, The Theory of Everything and Last King of Scotland.

He has now been selected as the prospective candidate for the Hounslow Green Party in Isleworth ward for the May local elections.

Mr Juritz says, “I am a professional musician and have lived in London since 1976. I joined the Green Party in the 1980s because I believe that safeguarding our environment for future generations should be at the heart of all public policy.

While we can all make our own individual contributions as we face the challenges of climate change and environmental degradation, those actions have minimal effect unless supported by meaningful action at a governmental level.

“I am a car owner who uses a bicycle (stopping at red lights) as my first choice of transport. I strongly believe that, while going green may require us to make changes, it will lead to more prosperous and happier lives for us all, and ensure that our children enjoy a secure and fulfilling future.”

Isleworth ward is currently represented by Labour councillors Daanish Saeed, Sue Sampson and Salman Shaheen.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we’d be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you’d like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT.
