Congratulations to Allan Tweddle, our new Lib Dem London Assembly candidate for Bexley and Bromley photographed here with Siobhan Benita, the Lib Dem candidate for London Mayor.
While all eyes have been focussed on our recent successes in the Local Council and EU elections, another small contest has been underway around London. The members of all of the capital's local parties have been selecting who should represent them in next year's London Assembly elections.
The votes were counted on the morning of Friday 7 June at Liberal Democrat HQ. Allan Tweddle said: "I'm delighted to announce that the members in Bexley and Bromley borough voted for me to stand as their candidate for the constituency that covers the region. Thank you to everyone who voted for me."
"It's a great honour to have been chosen and I'm looking forward to what will be an exciting campaign. We have a great base to build from. Let's make as much noise as we can over the next year so that the voters know who we are and understand that we are the liberal, open and rational choice standing up for their values against the extremism and intolerance that has tainted our politics in recent years."
Allan said: "Our party is back, and we have a great message. Let's make sure that, come next May, no one can say that they don't know what the Lib Dems stand for."
If you want to be part of our campaign then please get in touch.
