Cllr Florence Eshalomi stepping down at May’s council elections – but still representing Brixton Hill at City Hall


P1020764After twelve years, Cllr Florence Eshalomi (formerly Nosegbe) will be retiring from Lambeth Council in May at the local elections.

In her time on the Council, Florence served as a cabinet member and as the Brixton area lead. One of her proudest achievements was setting up the Youth Mayor scheme and ensuring that Lambeth Young People have access to the decision makers. Flo has always championed our youth services and the involvement of young people in our democratic structures.

In 2016, Florence was elected as the Labour London Assembly Member for Lambeth & Southwark, representing local residents at City Hall and serving as Labour’s Transport Spokesperson. In that capacity, Florence will continue to serve Brixton and will continue to take up issues of real importance to the area, like air quality, road safety and bringing the Overground to Brixton.

Flo said: “Representing Brixton Hill ward for me on a personal level will always be an honour – the girl from Somerleyton Estate, which was often regarded as a no-go area in the heart of Brixton, would now be able to help the wonderful people of Brixton get answers from Lambeth Council.

“I’m excited that another fabulous Black Woman in Maria Kay will be filling my shoes and hopefully be elected as one of the Brixton Hill Councillors come 3rd May 2018.”
