Siobhan makes her first speech to a packed room at London Regional Conference as the Liberal Democrats kick off their plans to take City Hall in the London 2020 elections.
Commenting on her successful campaign to secure the Mayoral candidacy, Siobhan Benita said:
"I will show the Lib Dems can offer a fresh alternative to London's tired two party politics.
"Sadiq Khan isn't delivering the right solutions to violent crime and only the Liberal Democrats can provide a genuinely public health approach.
"The Tories have shown how out of touch they are with London's values by selecting an illiberal, pro-Brexit candidate.
"Only the Lib Dems have truly stood up for Londoners against Brexit and we will continue to be a strong, liberal voice for our city."
With a new candidate place, if we start now we can make real progress. (We are already polling above 15% in London!) 2020 is going to be our year!
But if we are going to put more Lib Dems in City Hall we need to move quickly. Both Labour and the Tories have selected candidates.
We plan to run a full London campaign operation starting in January 2019
- but we need you to help fund it.
Can you spare £10?
