He has lived in the constituency all of his life and is eager to learn more about the history and culture of all aspects of the constituency. Although on a steep learning curve Joel is excited by the challenges to come.
Joel has worked on campaigns across the South East including the parliamentary elections of 2015 in Eastbourne but also Maidstone. Furthermore, he worked with the Hastings & Rye Liberal Democrats in the Hastings Borough elections of 2016. As a believer of a United Kingdom in the European Union, prior to the referendum Joel worked hard for the Remain campaign across the constituency.
