St Margaret's Ward - Jeremy Brown
Jeremy is the Labour candidate for St. Margaret's Ward at the Borough Council election on 3rd May 2018.
Jeremy has lived in Ipswich since 2014, and often enjoys spending time in Christchurch Park, a short walk from his home on Fore Street. Since moving to Ipswich he has served as a volunteer for multiple organisations around the town, including Ipswich Soup Kitchen, The Teapot Project, and children's work at Hope Church Ipswich.
Recently he was appointed a trustee of Suffolk Coalition of Disabled People, and through this he particularly aims to give a voice to residents with mental health disabilities.
From his master's degree in Environmental Sciences at UEA, Jeremy became a specialist in conducting structured interviews with residents to listen their views on issues such as fuel poverty, and sustainable transport.
Currently Jeremy is employed as an external funding officer at Suffolk County Council, where he assists charities, social enterprises and local authorities to access grants for innovative projects that help transform their community services.
Since joining the Labour Party he has been active in both local and general election campaigns, and for the upcoming borough elections is keen to listen carefully to residents' views on borough-level issues that affect the ward, such as housing, museums, parking, air quality, and recycling.
