Daisy lives in the heart of St Albans. She is a committed Remainer and is campaigning to stop a hard BREXIT. Her priorities are to stop Brexit, tackle the climate crisis and secure additional funding for our NHS services and schools. Daisy has campaigned alongside the "Save the St Albans Pubs" campaign for two and a half years, successfully changing Liberal Democrat party policy to abolish the outdated business rates system which is killing our high streets and replace it with a fairer tax. Daisy also runs the 1500+ strong St Albans Commuter and Passenger Action Group which influenced a Parliamentary inquiry, secured additional compensation following the 2018 summer of disruption, and continues to provide a vital online community for rail users.
Daisy used to work for the cross-party movement More United. As Campaigns Director, she designed and delivered campaigns that changed government policy four times. Previously, she worked in Commonwealth affairs for 10 years - campaigning for improved LGBT+ rights abroad and against human rights violations in Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka, and with victims of press abuse at Hacked Off.
Daisy has a high profile within the Lib Dems. She is known in the party for being a driving force behind the adoption of "One Member One Vote" and was part of the team that designed measures to improve the diversity of the party's Councillors and future MPs.
She was elected to Parliament in the 2019 General Election.
