Labour, Conservative and Liberal Democrat candidates for the Fortune Green by-election on July 22 have been confirmed.  

Lorna Greenwood will be standing for Labour, Ian Cohen for the Tories, and Nancy Jirira for the Lib Dems.  

The Greens are not putting forward a candidate for the by-election that was triggered following the resignation of longstanding Camden councillor Flick Rea.  

Fortune Green resident Lorna works in the arts and charity sector, and while she was furloughed during lockdown she volunteered to support the local Covid-19 relief effort.

Ian has lived in Fortune Green’s BAM Estate for 50 years and runs a local dry cleaners. The Emmanuel School governor fell short by 74 votes when standing in 2014.

Nancy, also a governor at Emmanuel School, is a nurse who has lived in the West Hampstead area since the mid-1970s. She represented Fortune Green as a councillor from 2008-2014.
