The Harold Wood teenager is running in the Gooshays ward and hopes to engage with the younger generation in the political arena. “It’s sad my generation has a lack of interest in politics. My vote is just as important as someone from my parents’ and grandparents’ generation, yet why don’t we use it?” he said.
Bok Tucker, is the step-son of the leader of the Independent Residents’ Group Cllr Jeff Tucker.
The 20-year-old said he was influenced by his step-father’s politics and wishes to “do what I am told by the people who may elect me”.
