Emma Best AM
Emma Best was elected as a London-wide Assembly Member in May 2021.
Born and raised in Waltham Forest, Emma has lived in north east London all her life. Before the Assembly, Emma worked in children services, helping some of London’s most vulnerable children and young people access services and support.
Emma entered politics after experiencing the struggles in London first-hand; sofa surfing, knife crime, and the rising cost of living. She has served as a councillor in Waltham Forest since 2018, leading the charge against inappropriate overdevelopment and the expansion of the ULEZ.
In 2023, she was elected deputy leader of the City Hall Conservatives.
