Brian Paddick will be formally unveiled as the Liberal Democrat
candidate for Mayor of London at a press conference on Monday morning.

Commenting, Brian Paddick said:

“I want to thank my fellow candidates for engaging in a high standard of
debate throughout the campaign.

“I also want to thank my excellent team without whom I would not have
been selected.

“Most of all, I want to thank London Liberal Democrat members who placed
their trust and confidence in me to be their candidate for Mayor of
London – I won’t let you down.”

Commenting, Liberal Democrat Leader and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg
said:

“Brian’s experience is exactly what London needs right now. Whether
dealing with the aftermath of the riots or phone hacking and corruption
in the Metropolitan Police, Brian has shown in recent weeks that he has
the authority and leadership that London needs.

“Brian provides Londoners with a real, credible alternative to Boris
Johnson and Ken Livingstone.”
