Councillor to contest Assembly seat for Lib Dems

Local Democracy Reporting Service

A Haringey councillor will contest a London Assembly seat for the Liberal Democrats in next year’s elections.

Dawn Barnes is hoping to secure the Enfield and Haringey seat, currently held by Labour’s Joanne McCartney.

Ms Barnes took her Crouch End seat on Haringey Council from Labour in last year’s local elections.

She previously stood for the Enfield and Haringey London Assembly seat in 2012, finishing in third place behind Labour’s Ms McCartney and Conservative candidate Andy Hemsted.

Ms Barnes said in a statement she was “delighted” to have been chosen to represent the Liberal Democrats.

She said: “Being the candidate for Enfield and Haringey is special to me, as I have lived in one or other borough since I came to the city in 2007.

“London faces huge challenges not just from Brexit, but also from knife crime, the pressing need for affordable housing and better air quality.”

The London Assembly elections will take place on 7 May 2020.
