At last a reply from candidates for Mayor re age friendly London

After a lot of work we managed to send our list of key priorities that we older Londoners have drawn up to inform politicians what is needed to make London an age friendly city. We have sent the requests that all politicians standing as candidates for the Mayor of London and GLA assembly to endorse these priorities. So far we have had a positive reply from the Lib Dems and from an independent candidate, but are still waiting for a response from the Greens ( who should be on board as they have quite a few age friendly policies ) and from Sadiq who did after commit to London joining the Age Friendly cities network. The Tories should also come around seeing as a lot of their votes come from older Londoners ( but not all of them)
