One of Kensal Green’s newly elected councillors has returned to the political spectrum after a 20 year break.
Cllr Dan Filson had previously served as a council in Hammersmith and Fulham from 1982 to 1994.
The retired civil servant said: “This is fifth election; I have had four in Hammersmith and Fulham. I am extremely happy to be elected as councillor in Brent.”
His ward colleague Cllr Matt Kelcher told the Times he was ‘hugely excited’ to serve his home ward.
“It has been long fought battle. We have knocked on every single door in Kensal green over a year,” he added.
“It’s been good getting to know the area, building up relationships and getting to know the community even more.”
Cllr Claudia Hector, who first became a councillor in the ward in 2010, thanked residents for voting for Labour.
