3:10pm Friday 21st September 2012 in News
A by-election candidate has been chosen after a councillor stood down due to ill health .
Carlie Goldsmith will contest the seat of East Brighton on Brighton and Hove City Council for the Green Party.
Ms Goldsmith, who is a criminologist, said: “My experience of growing up in Whitehawk, and bringing up my own family there, is that my neighbours and friends have felt for decades that they’ve been let down by both Labour and Conservative administrations in the city.”
The seat became vacant when Labour councillor Craig Turton stood down.
