Candidate for the position of KCL Liberal Democrats - President

Gabriel Y Pontin

A KCL Lib Dem in Every Constituency and Every Ward

I've been treasurer of the KCL Lib Dems for a year now and I've learned a lot whilst helping both Toby and Madi rebuild this society from the ground up. I want the committee to expand and include as many newcomers as possible so that we can build on the good work we've already achieved.

We've coordinated with local parties across London to help them win their target wards on May the 5th and hope our contribution can put us in good stead.

We've laid the groundwork for an increased profile next year by contacting the chair of London Young Liberals.

And we've made the preparations to run events with other university Lib Dem societies.

I want to take the society further and build on the foundation left by our current president, I want the KCL Lib Dems to be a campaigning force that goes to where we're needed most in London, there shouldn't be an election or by-election we don't contribute to.

I also want to bring Liberal Democrat politicians of all stripes in to allow us to learn from the most successful, in my time as treasurer I've already confirmed future events with former MP Simon Hughes and current London Assembly Member Caroline Pidgeon.

As the organiser for London's most marginal ward, I'm uniquely qualified to take this society on to bigger and better things, and with your vote I'll get to work immediately and prepare to increase membership, activity, and links with local parties so that we can all further the cause of Liberalism and Social Democracy here at King's and across London.
