Cllr Damian O'Brien
I was born in New Zealand and London has been home for almost 20 years.
I’m on the executive of the Bermondsey Street Area Partnership and am a supporter of Millwall FC.
As a Liberal Democrat Councillor since 2014, I have improved road safety at London Bridge, Tanner Street and Abbey Street. I have been fighting for a Bricklayers’ Arms station on the Bakerloo Line Extension. My proudest achievements are day-to-day successes in helping individual residents.
I want a London that people can move around in easily without concerns over health and air quality. I want a London that is Liberal.
I was born and raised in southeast London moving to Bermondsey 8 years ago. Specialising in change management, I work across Government, retail and charitable sectors helping to recover failing programmes. I'm passionate about the African Caribbean Leukemia Trust, helping deliver projects and fundraising in my spare time.
I'm an active member of my local police panel and my local community. Since childhood I've always fought for the underdog whether against school bullies, someone struggling to make ends meet or the lonely older person. Now I want to fight for the basic human right that everyone should have a decent home, food on the table, access to good healthcare and a sound education.
I strive for a Liberal London where everyone has a right to equality in life and is empowered to make local choices.
I was raised in France, originally from West Africa. I’ve lived in Southwark for over 20 years. I am a parent. I run my own business and have worked in local government.
I’ve been an active member of my Residents’ Association, local police panel and cultural events. I have a Masters’ degree in International Security and Global Governance. I also completed the New York City Marathon.
I joined the Liberal Democrats to fight for freedom from poverty and have helped hundreds of residents with housing and against anti-social behaviour.
I want to make my London safer. I want to make my London Liberal.
