Our very own Cllr Luisa Porritt has been selected as the Liberal Democrat candidate for London Mayor!
Reacting to the news, Luisa says:
“I love London - it’s where I grew up and it has given me so much. But huge challenges, such as the affordability crisis and the impact of Covid-19, mean this is a crucial moment for London.
“The pandemic will change our city forever. We need big ideas and urgent action to rise to the challenge.
“I will show what a liberal London can be like - where the 600 neighbourhoods that make up our capital lead the way.
“From putting homes in the heart of the city to reinventing our high streets for the future, we can renew every area in London to become thriving, green, and affordable places to live and work.
“As a lifelong Londoner, I know our capital is resilient. With the right leadership, creativity and vision, we can reinvent our city for the better. If we bring London together, anything is possible.”
Luisa goes into the race as a fresh face with fresh ideas. She beat the odds to win her seat on Camden Council in Belsize and beat the odds to win her seat on the European Parliament last year. Luisa knows how to defy the odds and win.
