We have target councils throughout the London Region and I have attended two meetings of our Conservative Group Leaders since my election to contribute the views of ordinary members to the election planning process.
In addition, I have been working with the Area teams to monitor how candidate selection is progressing and to provide support as required.
An active campaigner right across London all year round, both in target seats and boroughs and local government and parliamentary by-elections, I am looking forward to meeting up with you 'on-the-stump' in both the run-up to, and during, the elections.
Our Councillors work in some of the most challenging political environments anywhere in the United Kingdom, I want to play my part in leading the voluntary party's efforts to ensure that we not only get them re-elected but we strengthen their ranks too.
"Graham has built and led a balanced regional team that is acknowledged as the most effective in recent years. It is essential that our region continues to be guided by an experienced, knowledgeable and respected leader. I endorse Graham's candidature unreservedly and urge you to support his re-election."
Cllr Paul Canal, Chairman London North Eastern Area
