Worthing Daily recently asked all General Election candidates in the Worthing constituencies to state their case why you should vote for them on May 7th.
Here is what Hazel Thorpe who is standing for the Liberal Democrats in Worthing West has to say:
“Choose Hazel Thorpe Lib Dem for MP in Worthing West!
“Hazel has qualities needed of a hardworking, down to earth, practical MP. She is both a listener and an active worker.
“As a former Teacher and SEN Head of Dept. with years of experience in education, and currently a Further Education College Governor, Hazel tackles life challenges by networking, and finding solutions to issues. She has a lifelong real interest in health, governance and being a Trustee in a local charitable small business. Her work at Maybridge Keystone Youth Club enables her to encourage community links with Worthing Children and Family centres.

“She is interested in saving energy, reducing the cost of living for all and fuel poverty, improving opportunities whilst creating a lively local economy. Wealth, health and security for all.
