Max Schmid is 29 and lives in Parsons Green. He works for an environmental charity and is a governor at Queensmill School for autistic children.

He says: " Jean Campbell was an inspiration and I will do all I can to live up to her legacy and to the high standards she set.

“Wormholt and White City is made up of many vibrant communities yet many of its residents face untold hardship because of the Conservatives’ hospital closures, because they’re closing Shepherd's Bush Police Station and cutting police numbers and because of the awful things they’re doing on housing.

" I will campaign to defend the people in this ward and work for better outcomes for all that live there. Jean Campbell wanted to see so much done in this area and it will be my privilege to carry on working to bring about the changes she cared for so much."
