Jack Lavery has been selected as Lewisham Labour’s candidate for Sydenham in the upcoming by-election due on 6 May 2021. Jack is a local economics teacher and school governor who hopes to bring his experience as an educator and of living in Lewisham’s private rented sector into the council chamber. Jack said:
“I am incredibly proud to have been selected as Labour’s candidate for Sydenham. I am looking forward to working hard on behalf of everyone living in Sydenham. Lewisham Council are doing a huge amount of work in improving education attainment and opportunities. If elected, I hope I can bring my experience as a teacher and school governor into the role. I also want to advocate for the thousands who are living in the private rented sector, like myself, and help deliver more council housing across the borough. Sydenham has such a wonderful sense of community and I am eager, as soon as it is safe, to get on the doorstep, speak with local residents and earn their trust.”
Both myself and Cllr Liam Curran are delighted Sydenham Labour Party has selected Jack to be our candidate. I have been very impressed with his hard work and I know that, if elected, he will be a fantastic councillor for Sydenham and an asset to the council. Please join in the campaign to ensure Jack is elected on Thursday 6 May.
