You have three votes in the local elections on Thursday 22 May. Your three local Labour candidates are hard working community activists. Here's some more details about them and what they have already done in our local community.
Alex has been a councillor for four years and has had a home in Stockwell for over 30 years. He works for an education charity with schools in South London. He campaigned successfully to restore Stockwell’s war memorial and set up a new community centre for local residents who speak Portuguese. He has fought to protect local services like our post office and to keep council tax low to help residents with their bills.
Guilherme first moved to Lambeth in 2002. A community activist for many years, he is a member of Stockwell’s business association and supports the Stockwell Festival. As a volunteer at the Tate South Lambeth library, he set up a Portuguese section and also started a social club for residents. Committed to our diverse communities, he wants to see more local jobs and school places created.
Imogen has been a councillor since 2006, and she has worked for improvements in our local community including the new Stockwell Square and better recycling. She is Lambeth’s cabinet member for Environment and Sustainability and campaigned to bring the TfL bike hire scheme to Stockwell. Imogen trained as an actor and in her spare time is interested in animal welfare and the arts.
