MEET TOBY WILLIAMS
Like many Londoners, I came to this great city straight from University six years ago. This city has given me so much, but I know from first-hand experience how living in London can present real challenges too – not least getting onto the housing ladder.
There are millions of Londoners just like me, with experiences just like mine. But when it comes to our politics, there’s a lack of people just like us. I want to become an Assembly Member to change this situation and stand up for young Londoners.
I live in Tooting with my wife, Hannah, in a shared ownership flat which we were lucky enough to buy a couple of years ago.
I currently work for the Greater London Authority, which means that I already work day in and day out to change our great city for the better. Prior to my time at City Hall I worked in policing, which equipped me with an understanding of how London can be made safer and more secure.
But my commitment to public service isn’t restricted to the office. Tackling educational disadvantage is something that I am passionate about, which is why I have really enjoyed being a governor at a primary school in South London for the past two years.
I believe that I have a great plan to deliver positive change for London, and I can’t wait to meet as many Londoners as possible between now and polling day.
Yours, Toby Williams
