Meet Sophie Barnett - Romsey's New City Councillor
Sophie was elected to be Romsey's City Councillor by an almost 400 vote majority
|Catherine SMART*||Liberal Democrat||1016|
Sophie (aged 30) is a Chartered Accountant who works for the NHS and is University of Cambridge graduate with a Classics degree. She joined the Labour Party because she believes in a fairer and more compassionate society. Sophie is particularly interested in housing and the efficient financial management of Cambridge City Council.
Sophie describes herself as enthusiastic, hard-working and determined.
As Romsey Labour's candidate, Sophie is the person that we will be canvassing for to win the next City Council election.
You may have seen Sophie on one of her morning runs around the ward.
If not then you may have met Sophie when she has canvassed you at your own home, or at our stall outside the Coop on a Saturday. Or you may have seen her at the Mill Road Winter Fair working on the stall that raised over £200 for Romsey Mill.
When the County Council proposed to turn many of our lights off in Cambridge, Sophie was a leading activist for the successful Labour Women's campaign to keep the street lights on (Keep Cambridge Lights Bright).
This campaign resulted in the County and the City Council sharing the cost of keeping the street lights on overnight (despite this being a cost that the County Council are responsible for).
Sophie has a special responsibility for the Ridgeons development - so if you have any queries about that then contact her
Apart from frequent running around the ward, Sophie is a member of Cambridge Cycling Campaign and cycles to work at Addenbrooke's every day.
Sophie's hobbies are singing with the Dowsing Sound Collective, reading and spending time with family and friends.
Expect to see more of Sophie as Romsey Labour's campaign swings into gear over the next few months.
