We are very pleased to see Lambeth and London will now have two amazing Liberal Democrat London Assembly Members, Caroline Pidgeon and Hina Bokhari! Too long have either the Conservative or Labour mayors of London felt they could ignore Lambeth and sign off on unwanted new towers (hotels or commercial) or knocking down our estates rather than repairing them. We will have a much stronger London Assembly team to hold to account Labour’s mayor now!
We worked very hard this campaign period as did our candidates! We delivered many tens of thousands of leaflets, phone banked and canvassed across Streatham, Vauxhall and Dulwich & West Norwood. We’re pleased that we received tens of thousands of votes across the GLA elections, building on our second places in Vauxhall and Streatham in the 2019 General Election and our first place in the 2019 European election. Our Assembly candidates, including Florence Cyrot for Lambeth and Southwark Constituency, worked very hard over a two year campaign to secure our position. Thank you also to Luisa Porrit, our mayoral candidate, who ran a great campaign in challenging circumstances.
Thank you all for supporting us and bring on 2022's Lambeth Borough Elections!
