My name’s Chris Clark and I’m the transport worker who wants to be the first Labour MP for the Cities of London & Westminster.
I’ve worked in the heart of this constituency for over ten years, at London Underground’s iconic head office building, 55 Broadway.
I first moved to London in 1998 to study English Literature at King’s College London on the Strand. I lived in student halls in Vincent Square, around the corner from the office where I now work. In my first week at King’s, I joined the Labour Party and I went on to become Secretary and then Chair of the Labour Club.
Nineteen years later, I am an experienced campaigner with a proven track record as a councillor and a parliamentary candidate in the last three general elections. I’ve debated head to head in Parliamentary hustings with Government ministers. I’m ready to fight this General Election whenever it happens and am looking forward to presenting Labour’s case on the hustings, in the media and on the doorstep.
I’m proud to be a member of the Transport Salaried Staffs’ Association (TSSA). I am currently a full time TSSA rep, supporting members of staff at TfL whose jobs are under review due to a major restructuring.
