Brighton & Caroline a great match

Caroline lives in Brighton with her husband and two children. She loves the city and connects with her constituents – in her weekly advice surgeries, in the thousands of emails and letters she receives, and in talking to and working with community groups and local residents.

In 2010, you made history when you elected Caroline as Britain’s first Green MP. You voted for a gutsy, radical and independent voice fighting for you in Brighton and Westminster.

Caroline hasn't let us down.

With everything that's happening in our country right now, we need someone like Caroline. Someone who refuses to play games, or engage in the old politics of the party machines.

Caroline has been a consistent and principled voice for the common-sense change we need for Brighton. 

"Thank you for continuing to be an ethical and truly democratic representative MP. Your efforts on behalf of your constituency are very much appreciated” 
Lynne Shields, Vernon Terrace, Brighton

  • Leading a successful bid to make Brighton a ‘super-connected city’
  • Promoting the Brighton Energy Coop’s major new solar panel to power 600 homes
  • Fighting for a cut to the punitive rate of VAT on tourism – the lifeblood of many local businesses
  • Speaking out against high bus and train fares
  • Campaigning for public services, like the NHS and the railways, to be or remain in public hands

“There is enormous public anger about what the main political parties are doing to the economy and our public services. People tell me that they value a strong independent voice in which offers a clear, green and progressive alternative”
Caroline Lucas MP

Caroline has an outstanding reputation as a campaigner for social justice and human rights, as well as an effective constituency MP:

  • MP of the Year award
  • for her tireless work with deprived and minority communities in the city, including the LGBTIQ community, religious and ethnic minority groups 
  • Representing you at Westminster
  • She’s spoken over 1,600 times in Parliamentary debates
  • Bucking the trend
  • She has taken the campaign on ending media sexism to the heart of Parliament, wearing a No More Page 3 t-shirt in a debate with the Minister.

"Representing the people of Brighton Pavilion is an amazing privilege, and I'm delighted to have the opportunity to stand again in 2015 and continue working hard to do my very best for everyone living here,” says Caroline.

Make sure she gets that chance.
