VIVIENNE BOND (Liberal Democrat): I was born and bred in Hastings and my father owned The Woodworker. I had my own dancing school in The Community Centre in Red Lake Terrace, and did fundraising shows at the White Rock.
I was a councillor for the Gensing ward 1998-2002 and again 2004-2008; 2007-2008 I was privileged to be the deputy mayor of Hastings. At present I work in a special needs school in Hastings.
Key issues: making sure local feelings are taken into consideration on planning issues and the local plan; ensuring local people have a voice on all issues; maintaining public services and keeping local green spaces.
