Caroline Pidgeon is a member of the London Assembly for the Liberal Democrats, and Deputy Chair of the London Assembly's Transport Committee. Caroline is the lead Liberal Democrat Assembly candidate for the 2021 London elections, and was the Liberal Democrat candidate in the 2016 London Mayoral election.

Caroline has a strong track record of campaigning, both with Liberal Democrats and local communities right across the city, and also in the London and national media. She is focused on:

  • Standing up for EU citizens' rights - Caroline has been a strong voice against Brexit and the impact it will have on our city and citizens. Caroline will continue to stand up for Londoners and an open London.
  • Championing high-quality, efficient public transport. Caroline is a persuasive voice in the Assembly and in the media and has delivered Lib Dem policies like the One Hour Bus Ticket and held the Mayor, TfL and Crossrail executives to account over the ongoing delays to Crossrail.
  • Campaigning to keep Londoners safe. Caroline promotes new initiatives to tackle knife crime and hate crime, and has fought alongside local people against damaging police station closures.
  • Opposing the expansion of Heathrow and City airports - it's noisy, environmentally damaging and it's unnecessary.
