Old Bexley & Sidcup is my home. I’ve lived in Bexley all my life, my family live here and my children go to local schools.
I’m no stranger to an honest day’s work. My first job was at Bexleyheath M&S, and I worked for the company for 11 years. It taught me the dignity of work, and the importance of community.
I also know the value of public service, having worked as a councillor in Bexley for 17 of the last 21 years. I’ve been a champion for local people, and worked closely with community groups and local charities.
As a constituent I’ve seen first-hand how the local Tory council has let people down. And as a councillor I helped stop them when they tried to illegally withdraw school transport from disabled children, and stood up to them wasting your hard-earned money on expensive temporary accommodation.
Local people deserve better.
I will make sure our communities are safer by reducing speeding on our main roads, tackling anti-social behaviour and putting more police on our streets.
I will revitalise our high streets by standing up to Conservatives cuts and supporting Labour’s call to scrap business rates.
And I will push for the increase in investment our area needs, at every level of government.
So on 2nd December, let’s use this one-off opportunity to send the Conservatives a message. Let’s tell them we’ll no longer be taken for granted.
Give Labour your vote, and vote for me, Daniel Francis.
We're a people-powered movement.
Be a part of it.
