Caroline Ansell

Caroline Ansell: Sovereign

I was a teacher until a life-threatening diagnosis for my son changed the course of my life and ultimately, took me into politics.

When I was the MP for Eastbourne, I was influential in bringing in millions of pounds of investment for the A27 and Devonshire Park project. In this time, I championed the fisherman’s quay development and fought the unfair Harbour Charge; I want to pick these up again.
     

I am a passionate advocate for special educational needs, campaign with Save the DGH and I am behind the push for Marine Conservation Zone status for Beachy Head East.
