HANGLETON & KNOLL I have 22 years’ experience on three councils and am a former Labour councillor and Brighton & Hove Council chair of housing. I want to help consolidate the work of the Green-led Council over the past four years and to promote the message of “One Planet Living” throughout the city. I led a successful campaign to defend council housing, was a key member of the ‘Stop City Boss’ Campaign, coining the slogan “Allies For Democracy” for the all-party group opposing a directly elected Mayor.

From working as an accountant living next to Canary Wharf, to living in a decrepit Brighton basement, disabled, and in poverty, I have experienced and known of a broad range of societal problems. I currently work as an elected Representative on the Sussex Area Committee of the Co-operative Group. I’m anti austerity and dangerous cuts. I cannot rest whilst people suffer. I want to be elected to encourage infrastructure and housing investment from local co-operators. Cont Page 9.

Tom Druitt & Alex Phillips Tom Druitt is well known for setting up a local bus company, The Big Lemon, which runs local bus services using vehicles powered by recycled waste cooking oil from restaurants in Brighton & Hove. Always willing to stand up for his beliefs, in 2013 Tom camped in the elm tree at Seven Dials to save it from the chop during the improvement works to the roundabout. For transparency with his business role at The Big Lemon, Tom has annnounced that if elected, he will not serve on any key committees which decide bus policy in the city.

Regency Alexandra Phillips is already a councillor on Brighton & Hove City Council and during the last four years has been a fierce campaigner against government cuts and the so called bedroom tax which penalises council tenants who are on housing benefit. As a member of the Housing Committee, Alex has successfully progressed plans for a licensing scheme for private rented housing, and was also behind the plans to turn the old Hove Police Station into a school to relieve pressure on school places in the city.

I am passionate about getting more people involved, both in democracy and in Green issues. I want to help people to see its relevance to their lives and to future generations. For example I suggested the Big Kiss-In outside Sainsbury’s on New England Street, following the incident where a lesbian couple were asked to leave. I am just finishing my degree at Sussex University, where I was heavily involved with politics and the Students’ Union. I am an elected member of various committees.
