Today Brighton & Hove Conservatives have announced that community activist and school governor, Adam Love, has been selected to stand as their candidate for Central Hove ward for the local elections in 2015.
Adam, aged 28, who lives locally near George Street, will campaign for election alongside existing Conservative councillor, Andrew Wealls.
In the last election, Adam stood in neighbouring Goldsmid ward and was the top polling Conservative candidate.
Actively involved in the local community, he is a Governor at Blatchington Mill School and Co-Chair of the resident-led Local Action Team.
In these roles, he has helped the creation of new first class sports facilities for pupils and local residents, as well as working with the police to tackle anti-social behaviour, graffiti and dangerous driving.
Commenting on his selection, Adam said: “Central Hove needs more school places, a dramatically improved King Alfred and support for local small businesses.
“I plan to stand-up for Central Hove residents and champion the issues that concern them. Hove is a fantastic place to live – I want to improve and protect that.
“I am delighted to be selected as the Conservative candidate and to be working with the excellent Cllr Andrew Wealls towards the elections in 2015.“
Cllr Andrew Wealls added: “I am very pleased to have Adam join me. He lives locally, cares passionately about Hove and would make an excellent councillor for residents. I’ve been struck by his dynamism and enthusiasm, but also his considerable experience.”
Adam has an excellent understanding local government, as in his professional life he has worked in Boris Johnson’s City Hall and for Brighton & Hove City Council. He now manages corporate affairs in the rail industry.
