A sunny Saturday in Romford set the stage for a momentous event as Susan Hall, the Conservative London Mayoral candidate, graced the town with her presence. The people of Romford eagerly gathered to hear her plans and vision for London.
Invited by Romford's Member of Parliament, Andrew Rosindell, and joined by Havering and Redbridge GLA Member and Leader of Havering Conservatives, Councillor Keith Prince, Susan Hall arrived at Romford Conservative Headquarters, Margaret Thatcher House, ready to engage with Havering residents and address their concerns.
Susan Hall engaged in lively conversations with market traders and local residents. She listened intently to their thoughts and concerns, and, to no surprise, it quickly became evident that the main topic of discussion was the Ultra-Low Emission Zone (U.L.E.Z.) expansion. Havering residents expressed their frustrations about feeling overlooked as an outer London borough, receiving minimal support and attention from City Hall.
Susan Hall wasted no time in addressing these concerns head-on. She vowed to the gathered crowd that, if elected as London's Mayor in 2024, she would take swift action to remove the U.L.E.Z. expansion from her very first day in office. This announcement was met with resounding applause and cheers from the Romford audience.
Andrew Rosindell M.P. expressed his delight at the overwhelming support Susan Hall received during her visit. He remarked, "A raptous welcome to Susan Hall from the people of Romford on Saturday, as she outlined her plans to remove Sadiq Khan, cancel ULEZ and recognise the needs of ‘outer London’ areas like Havering, as our new Mayor of London in 2024!"
One of Susan Hall's primary goals is to ensure that outer London boroughs, like Havering, receive the attention and support they deserve. She believes that it is crucial to address the unique challenges and concerns of these areas, and her promise to cancel the U.L.E.Z. expansion reflects her commitment to this cause.
The U.L.E.Z. expansion, which has been a contentious issue for many outer London boroughs, has left residents feeling burdened by additional costs and restrictions. Susan Hall's pledge to remove this expansion from the outset of her mayoral term demonstrates her dedication to easing the financial and logistical strain on outer Londoners.
The Romford rally served as a testament to the strong support Susan Hall has garnered among Havering residents and beyond. Her promise to prioritise the needs of outer London and her commitment to reversing the U.L.E.Z. expansion resonated deeply with the crowd. As the 2024 London Mayoral election approaches, it is clear that Susan Hall has emerged as a strong candidate who is willing to champion the concerns of all Londoners, including those in the outer boroughs.
The rally in Romford was a significant step in Susan Hall's campaign journey, and it marked the beginning of a hopeful and promising path toward a brighter future for 'Greater London', particularly for the residents of outer boroughs like Havering.
Let us lend her our support and ensure that we vote for Susan come the election!
