Ashley Brown - Researcher

I moved to Hull from Burnley in 2006. I graduated from the University of Hull in 2010 with a BA Hons (2:1) in Sociology. After working as a Risk and Debt Management advisor I decided to go back to university and studied for a Masters in International Politics, focusing on international development, political economy and the European Union. I joined the Labour Party in East Hull and have campaigned across the city on a range of issues including the cost of living, freezing energy bills and saving our NHS. I work for Karl in the Westminster office as a researcher supporting him in his daily duties raising constituency issues.
