Cllr Dan Whitehead
Despite growing up in an area with few opportunities, I have worked my way up to become a lawyer for a global software company. I have always believed that, with the right support, everyone has the ability to shape their own lives.
For years I have campaigned to improve our community here in Rotherhithe, making great progress on battles to improve bus services and broadband, and to win a new walking and cycling bridge to Canary Wharf.
I believe that development can’t happen without infrastructure and I want my London to be greener. I want my London to be Liberal.
I have lived in London for 35 years, 18 in Southwark where I have been a Councillor, active member of the resident’s association and School Governor. I am interested in housing matters especially leaseholder issues.
In the last few years I have noticed a decline in services from Southwark Council and this is because of the cuts made by this Labour run Council who have reduced youth services and sold council homes whilst increasing their own allowances.
I want people to have fairer rents. I want my London to be affordable for all. I want my London to be Liberal
I’ve lived in London for over 20 years and have three children.
I do lots of work with the Samaritans researching social exclusion and depression. I love to travel, having visited over 40 countries
I want to make a difference and fight for social justice. Liberal Democrats believe that, when given the right opportunities and support, people are the best judge of what is good for them.
London is an amazing and exciting city, but also has grotesque inequalities – it needs to work for all of us. I want my London to be fairer. I want my London to be Liberal.
