Sue Hordijenko, Lewisham Labour’s candidate, won the Bellingham By-Election with 57% of the vote on Thursday, 21st July.
Sue has pledged to work hard for residents of Bellingham on Lewisham Council taking up issues like the Bakerloo Line extension to Lower Sydenham and improving Beckenham Place Park.
Sue said: ‘I have never, ever, felt more proud than I do right now. As the only candidate who actually lives in Bellingham, my neighbours have given me a huge mandate, 57% of their votes, to serve them in our ward.’
“I am approachable, a real grafter and I get things done. As a councillor I will do whatever it takes to ensure my neighbours are effectively represented on Lewisham Council and that we continue to have an improved quality of life in our area of the borough.”
Fellow Bellingham Councillor Alan Hall said: “We work well together and we will stand up for services across Bellingham, Perry Hill and Lower Sydenham. This vote has renewed our mandate in Bellingham. “
Bellingham Labour would like to thank all of the activists who campaigned for Sue and all of the voters who placed their faith in her.
