Havering and Redbridge’s London Assembly member, Keith Prince, has been officially reselected by the Conservative party to contest the seat in the 2020 elections.

Mr Prince, who was previously the leader of Redbridge Council and the borough’s Conservative group, was selected to defend his seat by unanimous decision at a meeting of local Conservatives held on Wednesday, November 14.

Londoners will go to the polls in May 2020 not only to vote in the capital’s mayoral election, but also to choose a group of London Assembly Members to represent the 14 GLA constituencies.

Mr Prince said: “I am delighted and humbled that local Conservatives have re-selected me to fight the Havering and Redbridge GLA constituency.

“Havering and Redbridge is in my DNA; I was born, raised and educated in Havering and have been a councillor in both boroughs.

“My children were born, raised and educated in Redbridge and I was the leader of Redbridge Council until 2014.

“I have loved representing our two boroughs and I look forward to speaking to residents about what I want to achieve during my second term.

“If I am fortunate enough to be re-elected I will continue to have a relentless focus on getting crime down, improving our transport infrastructure and ensuring that we meet our housing needs across the two boroughs”.
