Alexandra L R Phillips, The Green Party of England and Wales, Brighton Kemptown
Alexandra Phillips is the Green Member of the European Parliament for the South-East.
She is the second-longest serving Green councillor in Brighton & Hove, representing Regency ward.
Alexandra is married to Tom Druitt, and they have a son, Rafi.
“As Green MEP for the South East, I’ve been speaking out in Europe about the biggest crises of our time: the climate emergency and Brexit. I’m calling for a radical plan to create jobs, address inequality, and heal our communities. I want everyone, whether they voted remain or leave, to have a say on any final Brexit deal.”
“As councillor in our city for ten years, I know that you want affordable housing, new jobs, and to keep our NHS in public hands. Greens want to see class sizes in our schools drop from 34 to 20. We would scrap privatisation in our education system. The Green Party is against privatisation in our education system, which Labour brought in with academies and the Tories took that further with free schools. I stand shoulder to shoulder with the parents, carers, and teachers who overwhelmingly oppose the proposed academisation of Moulsecoomb Primary School.”
“Electing more Green MPs to work alongside Caroline Lucas in parliament is the only way to drive this radical change in our city. For nine years, Caroline has stood up for Brighton in Westminster. Greens topped the polls in the last city-wide election – politics is wide open now. Now it’s time to vote for who you believe in.”
