The Mayor has thrown his weight behind Georg saying that he understands the issues facing the area, and that he is determined to take positive action because he lives there.
The Mayor has gone one step further and has written directly to residents in the Nonsuch Ward explaining his enthusiastic backing for Georg’s campaign to make a positive difference to the area. Boris has welcomed Georg’s campaign for more police powers to tackle antisocial behaviour in areas like Fairlands Park; his calls for long-term solutions to the traffic problems in Central Road; concerns over the need for more school places and better healthcare provision, and his backing for the local ‘Freeze The Tax’ campaign (http://www.freezethetax.org.uk/).
Boris Johnson backed Georg for Nonsuch by saying: “Georg knows that more needs to be done to tackle antisocial behaviour in Fairlands Park, traffic problems in Central Road and the lack of school places and healthcare provision across the area. Why? Because Georg Braun lives there too."
Boris says: “I'm pleased that Georg Braun is running in the election to become your Nonsuch ward councillor.”
Councillor Paul Scully, Leader of the Opposition Conservatives on Sutton Council, commented: “Nonsuch residents have been telling Georg that as a local man, his priorities are their priorities. Boris has recognised Georg’s commitment to the area and his written directly to local people explaining why he backs Braun for Nonsuch.
“Residents can have their say on Polling Day, on Thursday 2nd July.”
