Daisy Cooper is the new member of parliament (MP) for St Albans.
Daisy says: "As your MP, my absolute top priority is to hold the Government to account over the Brexit negotiations. I will also be fighting for tough and immediate action to tackle the climate crisis and to protect and improve our public services as well as local businesses, workers and commuters here in St Albans."
She lives in the heart of the city and is a daily commuter on Thameslink. Daisy is known locally for her work to reform the business rates system which has hit some local businesses hard. She is also campaigning for a ring-fenced 1p income tax increase to fund our NHS and social care services, and for people to have the vote on any Brexit deal.
Most recently, Daisy was Campaign Director of More United. She previously worked in international affairs for ten years, campaigning for LGBT+ rights abroad and against human rights violations in Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe, and also in press reform. Daisy also plays violin and piano.
