Cllr Leslie Pumm

Leslie worked as a media designer and video editor and ran an LGBTQ+ marketing agency in Berlin before moving to the UK. He fell in love with the vibrancy and culture of the city and made Brighton & Hove his home. Born to an American father who served as a soldier in West Berlin and England, and a German mother, Leslie has always had a strong interest in politics. It’s not only the history of his ancestors but also the current injustice that led him to join the Labour Party.

However, before we can focus on ambitious goals, the city must first get the basics right: reliable rubbish collection, clean streets and beaches, and affordable bus service. As a black gay man, I can’t wait to champion the LGBTQ+ and BAME communities on the Council and ensure they remain an important part of the city’s identity.”
