Lewisham East is a diverse, lively constituency and one that has so much to offer. Yet sadly it has been neglected for far too long. The area suffers from a lack of school places, commercial centres such as Leegate have been left to crumble and insufficient housing has been provided for Lewisham families.
I’m standing to be the MP for Lewisham East because I believe that we can change these things and get the deal the people of Lewisham deserve. I believe that local residents no longer have to simply accept Labour’s waste or their excuses.
I understand what is important to people. I served as a councillor in a neighbouring borough and I have experience in health and also in the social housing sector. I know how important these services are and I have the knowledge and ability to ensure that Lewisham residents get the best deal.
My passion comes from my work with people and from my family. A south east Londoner born and bred, I am married to a primary school teacher and we have two wonderful children. I understand the pressures that families face.
As your MP I will work tirelessly to give Lewisham East the future it deserves.
