Cllr Geoffrey Theobald OBE
I represent Patcham Ward and am the leader of the Conservative Group.
I have lived in Brighton and Hove all my life and I was educated locally at Brighton, Hove and Sussex Grammar School and then the College of Estate Management London now part of the University of Reading. I am married to Carol, also a Patcham Ward councillor and Mayor of the City in 2007-2008 and we have two daughters and two sons.
I was Mayor of Brighton in 1982-1983 and Leader of East Sussex County Council from 1989-1993, continuing as Leader of the Conservative Opposition Groups on the County Council and then Brighton and Hove City Council until 2001 when I fought the General Election for the Brighton Kemptown Constituency
