Candidate for Brighton, Kemptown
Green Party councillor Alexandra Phillips, who in May 2019 became the city’s youngest ever mayor and the only South East MEP living in the city, has been selected as the Green candidate for Brighton Kemptown.
“Having lived at the bottom of Whitehawk for over five years, across the road from where my husband has worked for the last decade, and especially since giving birth to my baby Rafi last year, I feel more and more embedded in my local community.
“Brighton Kemptown is quite a mixed constituency and the demographics vary enormously from the deprivation that exists in neglected parts of our city like Whitehawk to the grandeur of Roedean. As an experienced local councillor I am well positioned to fight for campaigns that matter to everyone in the constituency: from the NHS services including the hospital, as well as opposing austerity to the human rights and environmental legislation which we will lose should we leave the European Union...
“I’ve lived in both Paris and Brussels. I speak fluent French and basic German, and I know the huge benefit that EU nationals have had and continue to have on our city. A European city like Brighton and Hove needs proud European representatives. Caroline Lucas has been essential to the movement against a hard, crash-out, Brexit and we’re ambitious about sending other Greens to join her in Westminster.”
