Florence Mele is ready to contribute to the London Assembly to make London a better place to live. She came to London 18 years ago from France and proudly consider herself as a Londoner, now living in Brixton.
Florence had the full London experience first as a student benefiting from its world renowned universities, then as a mother raising three children and now as a professional in the higher education sector. She started to campaign in 2016 to remain in the EU and then joined the Lib Dems after the referendum as the only party which want to give the people the final say on the Brexit deal. In December 2019, she was elected ALDE Council Delegate. The Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE) is the the European Political Party to which the Liberal Democrats belong.
As a pro EU campaigner, she is particularly concerned about the implications of Brexit for local businesses and its impact on our communities. As a mother, she campaigns with Siobhan Benita, mayoral candidate in London, to act early on young people's mental health and to fight the rise in knife crime.
