Kristy Adams has been selected to represent the Conservative Party in Hove and Portslade. Local Conservative Party Chairman, Councillor Lee Wares announced, “we are delighted that Kristy has been selected and she will be an outstanding MP for Hove and Portslade.”
Kristy Adams, who is well known to Hove residents through her design business and work to promote the arts, said “I am absolutely delighted to be chosen to represent the Conservative Party in Hove and Portslade. Four generations of my family have lived in Hove. I grew up in Sussex, and went to a state secondary school and then Brighton College 6th form. I started my career as a store manager in a busy shop on East Street, Brighton, and now run my own business, based in Hove. Both my children attend local state schools.”
Kristy runs a successful small business and stands firmly on the side of those for whom life is a struggle. She volunteers at the Brighton night shelter, works on a campaign to re-use school uniforms and worked with Theresa May fighting for the rights of people who have suffered modern slavery. She offers Hove and Portslade the opportunity to vote for an MP who will promote prosperity and opportunity whilst looking out for the most vulnerable.
Kristy added “I applied to be a candidate when the Conservatives reached out to people from a wider range of backgrounds such as women, community champions, and people with a passion for social justice. I knew I wasn’t a ‘career politician’, and I think it’s important that our MPs have experienced what it’s like to live and work in the community they represent.”
Kristy looks forward to supporting Theresa May in securing a strong and stable government delivering jobs and security for Hove and Portslade.
