We are happy to report that we have selected Ted Townsend as our candidate for the West Central constituency on the London Assembly. The election will take place in May 2021. The West Central constituency covers the Kensington & Chelsea, Hammersmith & Fulham and Westminster Boroughs.
Ted takes on the role from Jessie Venegas who stepped down when the GLA Election was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Ted has lived in Shepherd's Bush and Fulham for over 30 years, sings in a local choir, serves on the board of a local charity, volunteers at a local food bank and tries to enjoy (when possible) Saturday morning park-runs.
On being announced as our candidate Ted says:
"The Lib Dems are leading the fight to resolve the post-Grenfell cladding scandal, oppose the expansion of Heathrow, are pushing for a solution to the problem of Hammersmith Bridge after years of neglect by both Tory and Labour local administrations, and aim to tackle the air pollution that affects all of us, particularly our children.
London is a liberal city, particularly in West London where the Lib Dems came first in the Euro elections in 2019 by a long way. We also increased our share of the vote by 12% in the 2019 General Election while the share of both the Labour and Conservative parties fell."
