The Labour Party has selected Ivana Bartoletti to stand as its candidate for Havering and Redbridge in next year’s London Assembly elections.
Ivana works for the NHS, chair the Fabian Women’s Network and stood as an MEP candidate in the 2014 European elections, where she helped London Labour achieve the best European result since 1974.
Ivana says: “It is now time to build on our amazing results in H&R and to take the seat from the Tories. London is changing hugely and moving East. Our communities need the power combination of a Labour London Assembly member plus a Labour Mayor to ensure they benefit from these changes in London: in housing, transport, business and skills – areas I am passionate and knowledgeable about. I relish the challenge of overturning a Tory majority so we can deliver for the people of Havering and Redbridge. I will work hard in the months ahead - we are in this to win.”
