Val is an excellent choice. I have known her for many years and have always been impressed by her sincerity, intellligence and integrity. Val has already served Londoners well for eight years as Chair of the London Fire Brigade and now heads the London Assembly Transport Committee.
Val is also a champion for women and intends to put women’s concerns top of the agenda at City Hall. We have worked together in the past on women’s issues and on a personal level I am very pleased to have a campaiger for women in a leading position in the mayoral contest.
Good luck to both Ken and Val. They are a strong and balanced ticket well placed to lead Labour to victory.
