Leonie Cooper Assembly Member for Merton & Wandsworth

A Strong Voice for Merton & Wandsworth

Merton and Wandsworth has shaped my views and life having worked, campaigned lived here for over twenty years. It has made me who I am today. Being elected to represent the community I love at City Hall in 2016 was a huge privilege. Working with elected representatives at all levels and from all parties, community and third-sector groups and you, I hope to continue my work as your Assembly Member and make Merton and Wandsworth a better place to live, work and visit in the years ahead.

My Journey


Merton and Wandsworth residents deserve an alternative to the near-decade of austerity we have endured under successive Conservative governments. We deserve better than underfunded hospitals and overstretched schools. 

As your Assembly Member over the past five years, I have worked closely with Mayor Sadiq Khan. Together, we have improved public services and pushed back on austerity. We must now lead London though the Covid19 crisis. I relish that opportunity if elected for a second term. Together we can rebuild a fairer and greener city.
