Growing London's economy

I wanted to tell you about the new investment in London that we have secured from the Government. It is investment that will help grow London's economy.

Over the last three and a half years, my administration has been dedicated to putting more police on the streets and cutting crime; keeping council tax low; investing in transport and making the Olympics a success.

The video highlights my party political broadcasts from the last election and some of my key achievements since I’ve been in City Hall.
