Brett Mickelburgh

Candidate for Central Suffolk and North Ipswich

General Election - 4 July 2024

Brett Mickelburgh

Ipswich born Brett is the Liberal Democrat candidate for Central Suffolk and North Ipswich.

He is married, recently celebrating his 25th anniversary, and has two secondary school aged children. He is a district councillor elected two years ago and has cabinet responsibility for Finance and Resources - but he is not a career politician without understanding of life in the real world. He has enjoyed a successful career in technology that has seen him work across multiple industry sectors, seeing both best practice and more recently as a consultant helping companies reverse declines due to poor practice.

Brett is strongly motivated by community and a sense of fairness which is highlighted by his unpaid voluntary work. He was a Scout leader for almost 15 years and qualified as a football referee in 2018 – putting back into activities that he enjoyed so much when he was younger to give the next generation a chance to benefit from them.

He uses his business skills to benefit his County FA as a non-executive director and he was the treasurer of his local church and foodbank for 12 years, stepping back to make time to fight the general election. The foodbank grew from a cupboard in the corner to a vital part of the local community, in 2023 supporting over 500 families and distributing almost 58 tonnes of food as well as securing grants to support town and rural money advice partners to try to give people a hand up not just a hand out.

Brett wants to see a fair deal for everyone that puts real power into people’s hands regardless of wealth or perceived status while holding the already powerful to account.
