I’m Will, one of three Liberal Democrat candidates for the Hampstead Town ward. When I am not campaigning, I am a doctoral researcher in Classics at the University of London. I am passionate about education, particularly in Camden which boasts a high number of leading universities and some great schools. I am committed to ensuring that there is a strong and pro-European opposition to Labour on Camden Council.
I grew up in Shropshire where I got involved in local politics and community activism, at youth group and Parish Council level. I moved to Camden and I have called it home ever since. I am passionate about Hampstead, and I am committed to preserving its diverse make-up by ensuring that there is proper housing provision for everybody, particularly for young adults like myself for whom housing is an issue. I am also committed to supporting Hampstead’s thriving high street, which is home to many local small businesses, and makes our community a unique corner of the borough.
I was a member of the Conservatives for over five years before joining the Liberal Democrats during the EU referendum campaign. The Liberal Democrats are the only party standing up for an open and tolerant society and that advocates evidence-based policy.
