Labour & Co-operative team for May election confirmed for Brixton Hill

new team infographicWith local elections coming up in just a few weeks on 3rd May, the Labour Party has confirmed its candidates for Brixton Hill. Existing councillors, Adrian Garden and Martin Tiedemann, will be joined by Maria Kay.

Brixton Hill residents Adrian and Martin have been active Brixton Hill councillors since 2014 and 2013 respectively. They led the fight to bring in the Controlled Parking many local residents wanted and have campaigned extensively to tackle dangerous roads and rat runs. Adrian has worked hard with the Friends of Windmill Gardens since originally helping to secure the major lottery grant that led to the windmill’s reopening. Martin has been active on local licensing and planning decisions, working to ensure late night off licences act responsibly and small businesses are supported.

With the news that Florence Eshalomi is stepping down after twelve years, Brixton Hill Labour have selected Maria Kay as a candidate. Maria grew up just off Lyham Road and lives in Brixton. Her work for a charity tackling domestic violence is based in the ward.

In this election, alongside those commitments made in Lambeth Labour’s manifesto for a Better, Fairer Lambeth, Brixton Hill’s Labour team are pledging:
  • Better pavements and safer roads, with better and safer facilities for cyclists and pedestrians
  • To fight Tory cuts to our police and tackle crime and anti-social behaviour on Brixton Hill
  • To tackle litter, flytipping and public nuisance with better enforcement and more litter bins
  • To fight for the rights of our European residents
  • To tackle hate crime and violence against women

Maria, Adrian and Martin will be standing as Labour & Co-operative candidates, underlining their support for a co-operative economy and active participation in the Co-operative Party.
