Candice 4 South West

We are supporting Candice for South West

“I have no hesitation in backing Candice for the London Assembly candidate for South West as we need a strong voice in City Hall and powerful advocate for the area. I urge members to support Candice as we need an Assembly member that will be active and visible.”
Cllr Martin Whelton – 2016 London Assembly candidate for South West
“Candice has helped lead on a number of local campaigns supporting education and employability. I have first-hand experience of how Candice engages with people. She has warm authenticity that helps her to connect and communicate well with residents on the doorstep, at street stalls and in the community. I have no doubt these qualities will make her stand out in our campaign to see the first Labour Assembly member in London South West.”
Seema Malhotra, Member of Parliament for Feltham & Heston
“We’ve built up our position in South West through the leadership and hard work of previous Labour candidates. We can do even better this time, and I believe Candice Atterton is the best choice for this.”
Chris Priest – Richmond Park Labour activist, and former councillor for Royal Borough of Kingston Upon Thames.”
“Candice is an activist and councillor who lives her politics – for instance as a new bike rider, she’s cut her car use which shows her commitment to climate change, cutting local pollution and congestion. She is committed to tackling community issues as a ward councillor and as a cabinet member. I am certain this same commitment would continue if selected and elected to the London Assembly.”
Ruth Cadbury, Member of Parliament for Brentford & Isleworth
“Candice is a trade union activist and committed member of Unite Community West London branch and our Equality Officer. Candice has supported the branch to campaign against the hostile environment, universal credit and wider tory austerity, raising awareness of the impact particularly for women and the disabled, ‘bame’ and lgbt+ communities. She helped organise a ‘Stop Universal Credit’ campaign highlighting ‘holiday hunger’ and ‘period poverty’ and supported a protest to keep guards on trains to support people with restricted access.”
Raj Gill – Branch Secretary West London Unite Community Branch

“Candice is my friend and fellow activist. We have worked together on a number of campaigns and attended protests together including 3 Peace Events for International Peace Day. Candice is motivated to seek peace and believes that actively working to achieve social justice will ultimately lead to peace in our communities. Her principles and drive to reduce inequality so that life improves for everyone in the South West and London are what will make her a great candidate for Labour for the London Assembly”.
Gillian Caine, Twickenham CLP Member
“Candice is a valued member of Hounslow Council’s Cabinet. She is able to speak up for residents supported by her portfolio areas and their voices inform her decision making. She provides challenge and scrutiny when necessary and at the same time is a team player, a good listener and works collectively to find solutions. She will be a hardworking candidate and a huge asset to the London Assembly.”
Steve Curran – Leader of Hounslow Council
