Oisin HAYDEN BURRELL
“My name is Oisin, I’m 19 and have lived in Stroud all my life. I’m soon to be a student of philosophy and politics at Cardiff University and I’m a passionate skateboarder. Probably not the characteristics of your average candidate but that doesn’t mean my aspiration for a better and more equal society are undermined.”
“We are all aware that the best change starts from the grassroots, and that is why I am running for council here in Stroud.”
Thrupp is where I work and few things are nicer than walking along the canal on a sunny morning.
I became involved in the Labour Party in the 2019 general election, spending most of my weeknights that December leafletting or knocking on doors, hoping to make a difference for our community.
