Leon Maurice-Jones

Candidate for Streatham Hill East

Leon is passionate about social justice and climate issues.

A lifetime campaigner on climate and homelessness, he believes no one should live in substandard homes. Leon was educated in Elliott Comprehensive Putney and studied at Wandsworth technical college.

He has lived in Streatham for the last 25 years and has worked in many jobs from advertising to bicycle repair. Eventually he began running decorating teams and became involved in property development.

Leon ran the campaign that got trees planted on Streatham High Road. The intention is to plant many more.

On estate repair, Leon's position is that any landlord's first concern should be the upkeep of their property. He is keen to tackle local issues from potholes to pavements, litter and fly-tipping to alcoholism, antisocial behaviour to housing repairs.
