As your representative on the GLA my priorities will include:

Fair and living wages:  fighting against inequality and poverty through campaigning for a fair and living wage for all.

Homes:  tackling the private renting and housing benefit crisis that is forcing an exodus from sections of our communities and demanding progress on building more affordable housing.

Strong communities:  strengthening links between town halls and City Hall to create partnerships to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour, address issues around youth reoffending,  extremist behaviour and promote community cohesion.

The deficit:  voicing strong and vocal opposition to stop the Tory government’s attacks on the NHS, welfare support for our most vulnerable, education and London’s transport system.

Education and jobs: raising aspirations for young people through education, opportunities and access to employers, supporting the retraining and skilling of the long term unemployed and supporting growth industries to create new jobs.

Environment: using the City Hall platform to maximise opportunities to carbon offset, protect London’s green spaces and clean up our air.
