Karen Barber: “I have lived in Sussex for over 30 years, 8 in Billingshurst. Mother of 3 adult sons facing the challenges of student debt, low pay and zero contract hours. I worked in the civil service in Whitehall for 15 years and now run a small business. I am passionate about Labour policy to regenerate local economies, improve public funding to key services and to initiate and support green initiatives.”
Brian Johnson: “I have spent most of my adult life in Sussex, where I have pursued careers in both the entertainment industry (pubs, hotels and nightclubs up to junior management), and computing within the business and academic sectors. Diagnosed with M.E. in 1994, relapsed in 2010, I have experienced first hand the disparity within Britain’s ‘modern day’ economy – both as an able-bodied and disabled member of society, employed and not. I currently work, as a volunteer, in radio as a producer and presenter.
Andrea Grainger is a hard working activist who cares about the environment, she is involved with SERA and would work on behalf of the community in Billingshurst if elected. Andrea has a good track record of taking up on issues and casework.
