Labour’s mayoral candidate wins 54% of the vote in massive rejection of Tory austerity. Labour’s candidate – Damien Egan – has been elected as Mayor of Lewisham with 54% of the vote and a majority of 30,000.
Damien becomes London’s youngest ever directly elected Mayor, with the highest vote share ever in Lewisham.
Since 2010, the Tory Government has slashed funding for Lewisham Council in half. Labour has stood up to Tory austerity, including leading the fight against Jeremy Hunt’s attempts to close Lewisham A&E.
Every single council seat is also held by Labour. Thank you for your support and trust.
