Emma Norton Our Candidate in Marine
Emma Norton has recently been selected as the Liberal Democrat’s candidate for Marine Ward in the 2021 Worthing Borough By-Election. Emma is a mum and step-mum to 3 children and has lived in Worthing for over 30 years.
Emma originally trained and worked as a marine biologist, but following a career change, she entered the travel and then travel insurance industries. After starting her family, she chose to share her life-long-love of learning and became a science and engineering lecturer at a local college.
As a teacher, mum and volunteer with young people, Emma sees many of the challenges our children and young people face and wants Worthing to be a safe place for them all.
Emma would like to see more opportunities for everyone: with affordable homes, the right local facilities and good public transport links. She recognises the need for developing plans that will create a successful and sustainable future to protect not just our local environment, but the entire planet.
In her spare time, Emma enjoys local and family history, as well as a variety of water sports, walks on the beach or in our beautiful countryside.
