Boff was the runner up. The election takes place in May 2020.
As voting opens all three contenders have secured the backing from high profile figures – including council leaders and cabinet members.
All three are great campaigners and proven grassroots workers across London. Winning is a challenge but the prize is definitely up for grabs.
I’ve already voted for Boff as the Conservative candidate. Sometimes I suspect that he knows even more about the capital than Peter Ackroyd.
My campaign is a positive and upbeat campaign. It reaches out to non-traditional Conservative supporters whilst staying true to our Conservative principles.
There has been robust debate, for instance on legalisation of cannabis, but personal bickering has been avoided.
This evening Shaun Bailey, Andrew Boff and Joy Morrissey will be in Croydon. Voting starts on September 17th.
No celebrity candidates. No non-Tories. Bailey, Boff and Morrissey have all spent years campaigning, knocking on doors, handing out leaflets in the sun and in the rain.
Congratulations to Shaun Bailey, Andrew Boff and Joy Morrissey. The final choice will be made by Conservative members in London.
