Former councillor representing Bishop's ward in the London Borough of Lambeth
Gavin teaches English as a foreign language at the London School of Economics.
He says: "The North Lambeth area is going to change massively (with the Mayor's plans) and it's essential that those who see Waterloo as their home are prepared to take advantage of these changes and not be swept aside."
Gavin Dodsworth was elected as a Lib Dem councillor for the first time in May 2006 and served for two terms until 2014.
