|Ken's Capital Tour Starts In Merton|
Meeting with Wimbledon residents
Ken Livingstone, Labour's candidate for London Mayor, is starting a tour of all the capital's boroughs with various events in Merton today (Monday January 17).
Tonight he will be at a question-and-answer session with local residents at Merton Hall on Kingston Road, Wimbledon.
During his visit to Merton, Mr Livingstone (left), his running mate Val Shawcross AM, Mitcham & Morden MP Siobhan McDonagh, and Merton Council leader, Councillor Stephen Alambritis, will also meet staff and volunteers at a Victim Support centre in Mitcham.
Over the coming months Mr Livingstone will spend a day in each London borough, beginning with Merton. He made his commitment to the 32-borough visit programme when he was selected as Labour's candidate for the 2012 Mayoral election, in which he will again face Boris Johnson.
He said: "When I was selected as Labour’s candidate for Mayor I promised to listen to the views and concerns of Londoners. Over the coming months I will fulfil that promise with public meetings and events in every London borough speaking directly to thousands of Londoners.
Who will you be voting for as Mayor and what priorities should they have? Why not comment on our forum?
