Ivan Massow, has backed MP Zac Goldsmith for London mayor in 2016 and is inviting those who backed his campaign to vote for the MP, when the time comes, as well.
Four declared Conservative candidates are now vying for the votes of Londoners for the 2016 Mayoral race, which will see Boris Johnson’s tenure as London’s mayor end.
The four candidates which were successfully chosen by the Conservative party are: openly gay Andrew Boff, MP Zac Goldsmith, Deputy Mayor for policing and crime Stephen Greenhaigh and Syed Kamall, who is an MEP for London.
Ivan Massow had mounted his own campaign to run for mayor but was unsuccessful at the primaries stage that saw him lose out to four Tory in-siders, including MP Zac Goldsmith. A statement from the businessman said,
“He believes that Zac is the only candidate with the gravitas and potential, not just as a Conservative candidate, but also as Mayor – to carry the torch of Ivan’s ideas on social mobility, policing and even more so – how London can further embrace entrepreneurship, micro business, incubators and mentoring.”
Zac Goldsmith voted in favour of the same-sex marriage law in 2013, and has consistently voted in favour of pro-LGBT laws.
