Louise Calland is standing to be your local GLA Member because she believes Merton & Wandsworth deserves better representation at City Hall.
Having lived in Earlsfield for over 10 years, as both a tenant and a homeowner, like you, she is familiar with the day-to-day issues that matter. Housing, Transport, Health and Public Safety.
And as a new first time mother, now looking afresh at the facilities on her doorstep, your desire for strong local communities, safe streets, excellent local schools and health services, are also Louise’s.
With a background in health policy, Louise puts prevention at the heart of her policymaking. Preventing crime, preventing high living costs and preventing damage to the environment.
She has a vision for what our public services and community facilities should be like. And as a user of these facilities, like you, she knows what works and what doesn’t.
With a Labour legacy of under delivery and underinvestment, Merton & Wandsworth needs someone to stand up for our community and be a strong voice on the issues that matter to all of us.
Being a councillor for over 10 years, across two South West London Boroughs, Cllr Calland understands how local government operates and what needs to be done in order to get the best outcomes for local residents.
If elected Louise will:
- Cut knife, gang and moped crime by putting 150 more police officers on the streets.
- Support 100,000 homes for £100,000. Helping residents in Merton & Wandsworth get on the property ladder.
- Lead the commitment to be carbon neutral by 2030 - expanding the network of electric car charging points and investing in greener transport such as electric buses. Helping to improve our local air quality and to tackle climate change.
Put simply, if elected, Louise will work flat out on the issues that matter to you.
