Jill Clarke: “My name is Jill Clarke and I am standing for election as a Labour councillor in Denne Ward in the local elections on May 2nd. Although I have only recently retired from a career in nursing I am still very keen to continue to serve my local community. I will be campaigning to implement the Horsham Labour Party manifesto and to deliver a fair, safe, secure, sustainable and supportive community. I strongly believe that only with Horsham Labour representation on the council will issues such as the building of affordable homes and the protection of the environment and those most vulnerable in our community be challenged and addressed. I am also standing as a Labour candidate as I strongly believe that local democracy needs to be more transparent and accountable.”
Joanne Kavanagh: “My name is Joanne Kavanagh. I have lived with my family in central Horsham for 17 years. My children attended Millais, Tanbridge and Collyers schools. I am a solicitor and have worked in Surrey and Sussex, specialising in employment law, advising both individuals and companies. Prior to qualifying I worked as an HR Manager in the NHS and also in local government. I am committed to genuine equality of opportunity for all so as to create a fairer society. This makes business sense too. I am proud to live in Horsham and to be a member of a political party that really does put our community first. Horsham Labour party has put together a manifesto that pledges our commitment to important issues such as the environment, better policing, affordable housing, improved waste management and a transparent local democracy. Elect me and I will be working hard to put these policies into practice so as to benefit those living in Denne ward.”
Kevin O’Sullivan: “I’m incredibly proud to be selected as a Labour candidate in Denne, my local ward for the local elections in May. I have been a member of the Party for over 30 years and I am also a member of Unite. I am a retired Property Solicitor and have been an active member in the Crawley, Tunbridge Wells, Wealden branches as well as this branch since moving here in 2014. I have stood as a Labour candidate in Denne and Southwater wards previously and look forward to standing again in Denne in 2019 in order to put forward a progressive socialist message. I am also an active member of Amnesty International and consequently have a keen interest in human rights issues. In my leisure time I am a keen reader as well as enjoying sport, although now just as a spectator rather than as a participant!”
