Local members have selected Damien Egan to be Labour’s candidate in next year’s Lewisham Mayoral election. Current Mayor of Lewisham, Labour’s Steve Bullock, is standing down after 15 years of service.

 

Damien Egan is currently a Lewisham Councillor and Cabinet Member for Housing, as well as Training Manager at Ethical Trading Partnership.

 

Damien Egan said:

 

“It is a huge privilege to be selected by my fellow Labour Party members as our candidate to be Mayor of Lewisham. I want to thank the other candidates for giving their all in an intense campaign, as well as the many hundreds of Labour members for getting involved and helping to shape our ideas for making life better in Lewisham.

 

“Steve Bullock has given Lewisham fantastic service over the years, and now we must prepare for the future. Lewisham, like much of London, has been left behind by the Tories and their pro-Brexit, austerity agenda. That is why it is so important that we have a Labour Mayor to protect the most vulnerable and fight to ensure we all have a stake in Lewisham’s future.

 

“But whatever the Tories may throw at us, Lewisham’s greatest asset is our strong community. I care deeply about our diversity and tolerance and will always make sure Lewisham is an open and welcoming home for everyone. 

 

“If elected I look forward to working with the rest of the Labour Party: our national leader, Jeremy Corbyn, our Labour Mayor Sadiq Khan, and our local MPs and Councillors, in delivering a Lewisham we can all be proud of.”
