The two front-runners of the race for Mayor of London have endorsed the London Jewish Forum Manifesto 2016, signing up to the ten key pledges it outlines, and pledging to work with the London Jewish Forum should they be elected.
Sadiq Khan, Labour candidate for Mayor of London, said:
“I’m standing to be the Mayor of London, for all of the diverse and rich communities that make up this amazing city. That’s why the London Jewish Forum’s manifesto is so crucial, by presenting what issues matter to London’s Jewish communities across housing, transport, public safety and health. I’m determined to be a Mayor who listens to your concerns, and do what I can to make the city a better place for London’s Jewish communities, and truly be a Mayor for all Londoners”
Zac Goldsmith, Conservative candidate for Mayor of London, said:
“I’m proud to endorse the London Jewish Forum’s manifesto. The priorities it outlines are right at the heart of my Action Plan for Greater London, from protecting transport investment to cracking down on anti-semitic hate crime, to building a stronger, more united London.
The Jewish community in London has a long and proud history. As Mayor my policies will respect and celebrate that history. I will be the Mayor who makes London safer and more secure for the community.”
