Kilburn ward has three Labour councillors:

Cllr Maryam Eslamdoust

Maryam has a deep affinity to the borough of Camden dating back to 1989 when she and her family resided in Kilburn. Maryam has maintained her links to the borough of Camden by choosing to study and work in the borough.

Maryam is a keen campaigner for rights issues particularly disabled rights.  She has campaigned extensively for opportunities for both vulnerable and disabled people and has fought to combat discrimination in the work place.  Maryam is proud of Camden’s diversity and multiculturalism, she is committed to making sure everyone is fully integrated into the community and unified particularly when faced with our common problem: the recession.

She says: “I wish to spend my time helping residents with their problems and delivering in Kilburn and making sure that people are protected in the recession. I will do this by engaging and listening to people in Kilburn, improving the partnership workings between the local government and the voluntary sector and by pestering the council and the government for money to ease off the effects of the recession.”

Cllr Thomas Gardiner

Thomas was born in Camden and has lived in the borough all his life.  Having grown up in Camden council housing, being educated in the borough’s state schools and using the council’s services throughout his lifetime, he knows the best and the worst of what service users experience.

He has been very active on the council in areas including Housing, Adult Social Care, Fostering & Adoption, and Licensing. Thomas is proud to co-chair the council’s cross-party Corporate Parenting Board, which has achieved significant advances in what the council offers to looked after children, care leavers and foster carers.

He has campaigned on a range of local issues including housing rights, day centres, early years care, school places, HS2, licensing and many other issues. He believes that the council should be run in the interest of Camden residents and should deliver the priorities and needs of the whole community.

Thomas is an active trade unionist and campaigner for workplace rights. In his day job he works as an officer of a trade union.

Cllr Douglas BeattieDouglas cropped

Douglas has lived in Camden ever since he came to London from Glasgow fifteen years ago. He has been involved with political campaigns at all levels going back over the past twenty years. Having written for several leading newspapers, he has been a radio journalist with the BBC for the last decade.

“Camden is a special place, and one that I am proud to have made my home. However, while our borough is a great to live in, it is also a place of stark inequality. Camden Labour has done some great work to tackle this, but that work is by no means complete and I would like to play a part in taking it forward”

Douglas has campaigned on a range of local issues – opposing HS2, protecting libraries and for the building of more council homes. Employment, fair pay, training, education and housing are other issues close to his heart.
