Brighton and Hove Conservatives have selected their team to contest the vital Goldsmid
ward in the 2015 City Council elections. Their candidates for the 3 member ward
will be –
former manager of a law firm, local school governor, charity volunteer and chair of the local Party. Linda describes herself on her twitter account @lindi_lmf as ‘anti-bigotry and
pro equalities, dog, fresh air and freedom lover.’ Linda is passionate
about education, and in particular ensuring children from less privileged
backgrounds are given the opportunity to attend excellent schools.
(who is no relation of Linda!) is an investment manager who lives in Goldsmid
and in common with many other local residents endures the daily commute to
London from Hove. Paul is a Hove boy who is keen to enhance the City’s
reputation as one of the UK’s premier holiday destination. He is committed to
keeping council tax down, and has campaigned against the hike in parking
charges which have impacted negatively on so many Goldsmid residents.
is a solicitor who instigated a campaign with fellow leaseholders to take over from the
freeholder the management of the large block of flats in which she lives in the ward. She
is a director of the ‘Right to Manage’ Company and liaises with leaseholders in
order to ensure their concerns are addressed. Lucy has a particular
interest in housing and tackling anti-social behaviour. She is keen to
contribute her business and professional skills to make a difference for the
local community, and is proud of her Coptic Christian heritage.
Linda Freedman said, ‘Lucy, Paul and I are very proud to have been selected as
the Conservative candidates for Goldsmid. We are committed to addressing the
concerns of local residents, and are developing a positive and realistic set of
policies on school places, traffic, conservation and housing which we think
will appeal to Goldsmid voters.’
Mike Weatherley, MP for Hove, added, ‘Once again I am delighted with the
talented candidates stepping forward to become Conservative Councillors. I will
be working closely with Linda, Paul and Lucy over the coming months as we
campaign to win in 2015. They make a fantastic team.’
