Introduction: The entire boroughs of Merton and Wandsworth are combined to create one constituency on the London Assembly. It is represented by one assembly member whose role it is to examine the Mayor’s actions and decisions and stand up for the residents they represent in City Hall. Louise Calland is the Conservative Candidate to represent Merton and Wandsworth in the GLA elections, which will now be held next May 2021 at the same time as the Mayoral election.
A bit about Louise: As a member of the 50:50 campaign, Louise is doing her bit to get equal representation for women in politics.
But that’s not her only passion. For the past few years, Louise has worked with residents across Merton and Wandsworth to improve local communities.
Campaigning to save Wimbledon Police Station. Supporting investment in St Heliers Hospital. And backing local businesses with a Shop Local campaign.
Louise wants to continue her work with every resident in every community. That’s why she’s standing to represent Merton and Wandsworth in the GLA.
With the support of residents, she’ll work to make our streets safer, deliver more investment to public services, and back small businesses.
I was born to a single mum on a council estate. I’ve been homeless and out of work. But I turned my life around. And I spent twenty years as a youth worker helping young people do the same.
