My 5 Pledges to Labour Members

ON YOUR SIDE - A PROVEN WINNER

I am a two-time winner against the Tories. In 2014, I fought hard to become the first Labour Councillor in Maida Vale since 1986 – and I kept working after that. Labour won all three seats in 2018 thanks to the proof that we would work for them. I’ve learned how to get through to people who have never voted Labour, as well as our existing supporters.  I listen, and I am on your side.

BUILD HOMES AND PROTECT RENTERS

Campaigning for more good quality council homes and to protect estate residents from councils and developers trying to short-change them. Working to see a universal landlord register and rent controls to crack down on rogue landlords.

TACKLE KNIFE CRIME/ INVEST IN YOUNG PEOPLE

The Tories have made cuts of 91% to youth services in the City of Westminster.  I continue to campaign to reverse these cuts. We need better housing, jobs, and youth services to truly tackle crime, as well as more police and community police.

FIGHT TO KEEP LONDON GLOBAL

London is a global city, and should be open to all.

We must fight against racism, anti-semitism, Islamophobia, homophobia, and any kind of hate crime.

I will stand with other councillors, along with local government and the London Assembly, to fight for fairness for all, regardless of race, gender, background, disability.  I will fight for you.

A GREEN NEW DEAL FOR LONDON

Continue to hold the Government and local authorities to account regarding their promises to protect the environment, from the small ideas that make residents' lives better, to a city-wide Plan For London.
