Statement to voters

About me: • Born and brought up in Shadwell, Tower Hamlets, just outside the City of London.

Full statement

• A barrister by profession: having trained as a solicitor at a Magic Circle law firm in London, I subsequently worked as an Associate Solicitor at an American law firm in London. I am now in the process of building a practice at the Bar.

• A truly independent candidate with no organisational support or connections. Just sheer grit and determination to bring positive change to this great City and the diverse communities that make up the ward of Portsoken.

• Keen advocate for social mobility and diversity. My core objective as Alderwoman will be to make the City accessible to all; especially the working class and minority communities who reside in the City, but have been forgotten by the financial institutions.

Core objective: Make the City accessible to all

• Promote school-leaver and adult apprenticeships.

• Regenerate housing estates in the City.

• Support initiatives to repurpose vacant City premises as affordable workspaces for SMEs / creatives.

• Improve (road) safety for cyclists and all working in and residing in the City.

• Promote a Greener London.

The Court of Alder(wo)men should reflect the rich diversity of those who work in, and live in, the City. It currently does not, and historically has not throughout its circa 800-year history.

Vote for me to institute real change by giving a voice to those underrepresented in the City.
