Michelle Dunn is standing for the Conservative Party in Wanstead Village.
“I have represented Wanstead Ward since 2002 and lived in Wanstead for over 30 years. I have held several Cabinet Posts and was elected Deputy Leader of the Conservative Group in 2010. I am dedicated to serving the community and enjoy dealing with the concerns of residents in areas such as cleaner environments, road safety and transport. Housing issues have been a key part of my work and if elected I look forward to continuing to serve the interests of local residents as their councillor for the next four years.”
