UNISON Nominates Murad for City & East London

I was pleased that Greater London UNISON Labour Link has given a supportive nomination to Murad Qureshi for the directly elected GLA seat City & East.

Murad has been an existing Party list Assembly member since 2004 and before that was a London Councillor.  He has also worked in Housing and regeneration in East London.  Murad was part of the team that designed and built in my opinion some of the finest modern social housing homes I have ever seen.

He is a member of my branch and has been very supportive of UNISON over the years and recently spoke at and hosted our Annual General Meeting at City Hall.

Murad would be an excellent replacement for John Biggs who is stepping down after winning the election for Mayor of Tower Hamlets.
