I am writing to introduce myself to you as your Labour Parliamentary Candidate for Brighton Pavilion. My name is Adam Imanpour. I was brought up in Brighton and currently work locally as a mechanic for a family firm.
I am very proud to have been selected as your Labour candidate and to be part of the campaign to elect Jeremy Corbyn as our Prime Minister. This election offers a choice between a Tory Government which would sell our National Health Service to Donald Trump, or a Labour Government which will implement our Green New Deal.
Growing up in Brighton, I was lucky enough to know the difference that a Labour Government can make to the lives of ordinary people. I could go to sixth form at BHASVIC because of Labour’s Education Maintenance Allowance, which the Tories cut in 2010 (when they also trebled tuition fees), and which the next Labour government will restore.
I know what it is like when a family member has their Personal Independence Payment reduced, or when another family member loses their Working Family Tax Credits. This is the reality of our lives in Tory Britain. Because I live and work locally, I also know how hard many of us are finding it to cope – struggling in particular with high housing costs, which make things so tough for all of us, and for young people especially.
A Labour Government will scrap tuition fees and restore maintenance grants for disadvantaged students, so that access to education is a right for all and everyone can reach their potential, regardless of their background. That is just one of a hundred reasons why I am asking for your help with our Labour campaign in Brighton Pavilion.
Please join me:
- This Saturday, 16 November – when we will be organising street stalls across Brighton to promote Labour’s Green New Deal. Please contact your Branch for details or come into the Party’s office between 11am-midday at 11 Dorset Street BN2 1WA

Brighton Pavilion Labour Party is also helping with Labour’s other local campaigns – and on Friday 15 November – you can help the campaign for Lloyd Russell-Moyle in Brighton Kemptown. Meet at 33 Dawson Terrace, Brighton BN2 0EL at 2pm.
You can also help by donating to our local campaign here. This will be really appreciated.
There’s only a month to go until we can elect a Labour government, so let’s do everything we can to ensure that happens.
Thank you for your support for the Labour Party.
