Boris Backs Braun for By-Election

In a meeting in the Mayor’s Office at City Hall, your Nonsuch by-election candidate Georg Braun discussed local issues with Mayor Boris Johnson.

Local man Georg looked at problems in the Nonsuch Ward with the Mayor, including the traffic lights in Central Road, Worcester Park. They also examined the parking issues on London Road that have seen many residents getting caught out with penalty tickets due to misleading signage.

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.

Polling day is on Thursday 2nd July.

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 (

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.”

    BoJo himself! Chances are that you've achieved more in a few weeks of campaigning than this poxy council has for years when it comes to Central Road!

    Now are you going to roll your sleeves up and sort it out please?

  2. Mr Braun,

    School places is definitely an issue AND doctors' surgeries. Our area is dense in population but without adequate facilities. The sheer of people movement during daytimes is what congests Central Road and massive influxes of people with their demand for services is placing immense pressure on our area.

    I don't think there has been sufficient attention paid to the pressures of population increases in Worcester Park. Part of this fault must lay with LBS Council because it is in charge of planning/development strategies.

    You can have my vote if you will work to ensure that development is right for Worcester Park and proper investments are made in our area.
