Local Conservatives have selected Kieran Terry as the new Conservative London Assembly Candidate for Greenwich and Lewisham. Kieran was chosen by Conservative Party members from both boroughs at a selection meeting in Eltham yesterday evening (Thursday 22 June).
Kieran is a Chartered Accountant and has lived on the New Eltham/Chislehurst border for more than a decade. A former Conservative councillor and school governor, he has a long-standing record as a campaigner standing up for residents and working hard on local issues.
Kieran Terry, Conservative Assembly Candidate for Greenwich and Lewisham, said: "I am absolutely delighted to be selected as the Conservative candidate for Greenwich and Lewisham for the 2024 London Assembly election. The campaign starts here - I'm really looking forward to meeting residents across both boroughs over the forthcoming months and discussing their priorities for London.
"I am particularly keen to tackle some of the transport and crime related issues residents have been raising with us. The government has given London enough funding for an extra 3,000 police officers and it’s vital Greenwich and Lewisham get their fair share of these. We must also hold Transport for London to account for their poor road maintenance and continue to lobby Southeastern to restore local train services."
Councillor Matt Hartley, Leader of Greenwich Conservatives, said: "Kieran is a terrific campaigner, and we are all looking forward to supporting his campaign to get Greenwich and Lewisham a better deal from City Hall. I'm looking to campaigning with Kieran to help secure the Conservative Mayor we need in 2024 - a Mayor who actually listens to Londoners and local people's concerns - as well as a strong team of Assembly Members."
