Brent’s very own Dawn Butler MP has won the Women in Public Life 2009 award for ‘MP of the Year’.
The awarders (Dods & Scottish Widows) stated:
Dawn’s work in youth engagement, specifically around the issue of knife crime, is second to none. She is a hardworking MP with her feet on the ground who knows how to connect with her constituents and young people in a way no one else in Parliament can. If we had more men AND women in politics like Dawn the world would be a happier place and political engagement amongst young people would sky-rocket.
