I am standing as an independent candidate in the Bognor Regis and Littlehampton constituency.
I believe it's time for a new kind of politics. I believe we need to put our energy into finding solutions together, seeking common ground, listening to each other and caring more.
I have worked passionately in my community for over 20 years. Founding the award-winning community WIRE project in 1996 and more recently working in education at The Littlehampton Academy as the Community & Pastoral Leader (chaplain) for 8 years. In 2006, I was awarded an MBE for Services to Young People in West Sussex by the Queen.
I want to keep inspiring this community that more change can take place. I want to involve as many people as possible of all ages and different backgrounds in persisting to make positive difference to the local, national and international world in which we live.
Standing for election as an MP is new, but standing up for this community is not!
Working alongside and supporting teachers, championing and encouraging young people, listening to and responding to the needs of local people - these are things I have always done and always will. I know I will bring a fresh approach as an independent candidate. I have a heart for change. I believe there is a different way to achieve a fairer and just society.
Here is my website with my manifesto, values, experience and campaign team: https://www.paulsanderson.org/.
Any donations will help with my campaign activities including: leafleting, posters, signage, banners, website, social media boosts, advertisements and canvassing.
As a political campaign we have to abide by electoral law. This means, if you are kind enough to donate more than £50, your name and address will be checked against the electoral register to ensure that you are eligible to donate and your name will be given to the council's returning officer.
Many thanks in advance for all your support.
