Letter to Members of Lewisham’s Labour Parties dated 31st August 2017
VOTE ALAN HALL FOR MAYOR OF LEWISHAM
The future of Lewisham is in your hands. You will receive your ballot to choose the Labour candidate for Mayor of Lewisham on Friday. I am asking for your vote in the selection for Mayor of Lewisham. Your ballot paper will arrive in the next few days.
If you want to find out more about me you will be able to ask me questions live on Facebook today August 31st at 7pm. [You can watch a recording of this here ]
Please come and join us at the Blythe Hill Tavern on Standstead Road, London, SE23 1JB on Saturday 2nd September at 3pm – 7pm. It would be great to see you.
The Ballot paper is YOUR chance to vote for change.
It is your chance to choose a better Lewisham for our families, our friends and our neighbours in the face of austerity and adversity. I am offering you hard work, persistence and a track record of getting things done. See just some of what I’ve done on my Action Map of Lewisham here
My campaign has been endorsed by individuals and groups as diverse as:
Deputy Leader of the Labour Party John McDonnell
TV cook Delia Smith
Lewisham councillors Peter Bernards, Skip Amrani, Timi Ogunbadewa, Eva Stamirowski, Sue Hordijenko and more
Millwall Football Club’s Chairman, players and fans
Trade Unions Unite, ASLEF and the CWU
My supporters are backing me for Mayor of Lewisham because they believe that I am the candidate with the experience and ability to deliver on the issues which matter to Lewisham residents such as the NHS. See my interview on ITV News after the Lewisham Hospital verdict here
I have secured major community schemes including the restoration of the £4m lottery-funded Fellowship Inn project, and a 60-apartment ‘extra care’ complex which will help older people stay in the local area and free up much needed social housing, watch my video Lewisham – our home
I made sure that the London Living Wage was on the Mayor and Cabinet’s agenda back in 2008 and, as a result, Lewisham became the first London Living Wage accredited council alongside Islington.
I was born in Brockley, went to school in Catford and live in Forest Hill. I know that the diversity of Lewisham’s residents is its greatest strength. However I believe that we can still do so much better in Lewisham. We must be ambitious about Lewisham’s future, and aspire to change it for the better.
I am sincere in my determination to transform the way Lewisham Council works. I want to work together with our employees and our residents to make their lives better, fairer and happier. I would welcome this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to work with residents, councillors, trade unions and others in order to make this a reality.
As your Mayor, I will stand up for Lewisham. I am ambitious for every child, every teenager and every adult in Lewisham.
Hope to hear from you soon,
Councillor Alan Hall
