Elected in May 2008, Boris Johnson (b. 1964, New York) has taken an active role in ensuring that the public’s concerns were assuaged, particularly in his first year of office. Boris Johnson was already well known to the British public as a journalist and politician, frequently appearing on television programmes.
"One of my main concerns was always the lack of a clear vision for the legacy that would be left for east London from the huge investment we were making. Now I believe that the future for this most deprived area is spectacularly bright." (Evening Standard, 10/02/09)
