STEVE KELLEHER fo Mayor
Born and bred in Bermondsey to an Irish immigrant family, I grew up on a Council estate near the Elephant & Castle. I was fortunate to go to a Grammar School. I’m a father of five, and have coached cricket in London for many years and work in recruitment in the City.
The Social Democratic Party (SDP) is a patriotic, economically left-leaning culturally traditional party with a distinct political heritage going back over fourty years.
The SDP is committed to a more equal society, free of prejudice and we're proud to support the 'Don't Divide Us' campaign for social unity. Londoners share a common fate - there is such a thing as society.

BACK THE POLICE
Trust local police commanders to fight crime without political interference. Crime rates could be halved if we return to community foot patrols, increase beat officers by 10,000 and scrap low priorities like monitoring social media.
FREE PUBLIC TRANSPORT FOR YOUNG PEOPLE
I will prioritise free public transport for people in the three years running up to their 25th birthday to help start new businesses and the search for work. We will introduce a 'London Citizen Card' for those who have lived in the capital for five years consecutively - entitling them to benefits such as occasional free tube travel.
50,000 NEW COUNCIL HOUSES
I will target for 50,000 new council houses per year by 2024 with a ‘Points Super Bonus’ for young people born and brought up in the borough where they apply for social housing. We want more London families to stay close between generations, with grand-parents, parents and grown-up children close by. Families are the foundation of our society.
