Cllr Maria Linforth-Hall
I have lived in Southwark since 1984 and been a Liberal Democrat Councillor since 2014.
I speak fluent English, Spanish and French and have run small companies in the borough, including an art gallery off Borough High Street. I have always been an active member of my community, involved in Neighbourhood Watch and St George’s Cathedral.
As a pensioner, I strongly support older people at the council and with our local police team to tackle concerns about crime. I have also set up a charity to support domestic violence survivors.
I am from Ecuador originally and am proud to have supported the Latin American community at the Elephant and Castle, fighting to make sure that our vibrant existing businesses are protected and celebrated.
I want to make my London welcoming. I want to make my London Liberal.
I have been a council tenant at the Elephant and Castle since the 1980s. I’ve been fighting hard to make sure that existing residents are not priced out of our area because of regeneration.
I’m a trustee of an education environmental charity, a charity that supports domestic violence survivors, and I am a deacon at my church. In 2012 I graduated with a degree in Politics and Economics as a mature student at Goldsmiths’ University.
Green issues are very close to my heart. I am a cyclist and Chair of Green Liberal Democrats. I am passionate about helping people and am very proud to have started funding for Peckham BMX, which now sends young people to the Olympics.
I want to make my London sustainable. I want to make my London Liberal.
