Local Liberal Democrat Bridget Fox is her party’s parliamentary campaigner for Islington South & Finsbury.
Bridget has a long record of public service in Islington, including as a school governor, charity trustee, and councillor for Barnsbury Ward 1998-2006. She led the successful campaign to Save Essex Road Post Office.
Bridget is currently campaigning to defend local health services at the Whittington Hospital and Finsbury Health Centre; and to fight the worst provisions of Labour’s Digital Economy Bill.
Bridget has lived in Islington since 1992, first in Highbury, then for many years in Barnsbury and now just off Essex Road. At the 2005 General Election, as the Lib Dem candidate in Islington South & Finsbury, she made history by converting a previously safe Labour seat into a marginal. Fighting the seat again in 2010, Bridget won more votes than ever before, and remains the challenger to Labour.
Bridget is an award-winning campaigner and is active in many local groups, including the St Luke’s Timebank, NO2ID, and the North London Fawcett Group. She is a member of St Mary’s Church, Upper Street.
In her spare time she enjoys music, socialising and exploring historic London.
