Labour's Sonia Winifred wins by-election
Sonia Winifred was elected to Lambeth Council yesterday following a by-election in Knights Hill.
Sonia, who worked at West Norwood library for 15 years, polled 1,265 votes, with the Conservative candidate second on 248 votes and the Greens on 230.
She put three pledges at the centre of her campaign, promising to:
- Make West Norwood a vibrant and attractive town centre by attracting new business and new jobs
- Build on the opening of the new leisure centre by ensuring the refurbished West Norwood library is delivered on time.
- Fight Tory cuts to the NHS, the local police and help residents hit by the bedroom tax.
Sonia Winifred said:
“I’m delighted to be elected and I will work hard every day to repay the trust residents in West Norwood have shown in me. I'm determined to be a strong voice on the council, campaigning on the issues that matter to local residents.
"My priority will be to bring new jobs and new business to our high street and to speed up plans to get West Norwood library refurbished and reopened.”
