Ben for Highbury-West
Ben was born in London and brought up by his single mother. Living in Islington, he is campaigning for better services for the homeless, for police to tackle knife and petty crime in local hotspots, and an end to the Low Traffic Neighbourhoods.
Ben entered local politics after seeing the huge rise in inequality across Islington under a Labour-dominated Council. As well as being a father to a young family, Ben works full-time in healthcare and supports the Underground Soup Kitchen across Islington.
