Sally-Ann Hart has called Hastings and Rye her home for nearly twenty-five years. She lives in Udimore, near Rye, with her Husband Adam and their three grown up children.
Sally-Ann was born and brought up in Northumberland, before going to university in London and qualifying as a lawyer specialising in corporate finance law with a City of London law firm.
After university Sally-Ann pursued a career in Law. As a Solicitor she specialised in corporate finance law before taking a career break to bring up her children. Sally-Ann later became a local Magistrate in Hastings, working in both the Adult Criminal and Family Proceedings Courts, and a District Councillor at Rother representing the ward of Eastern Rother.
It is whilst as a Magistrate and Councillor that Sally-Ann realised her determination to be a Member of Parliament to help improve and enhance the lives of the less fortunate and vulnerable residents in her constituency. In particular, Sally-Ann has a drive to support rough sleepers and the homeless, as well as vulnerable children, young adults and families.
Sally-Ann stood on a manifesto in December 2019 to deliver for the residents and businesses of Hastings and Rye. She recognised that the time for warm words was over and the need for concrete and tangible action was now.
Since being elected Sally-Ann has made her priorities to turbo-charge the local economy, support the most vulnerable and fight for social justice.
As promised, Sally-Ann has already been delivering. In Parliament she sits on three Select Committees – Future Relationship with the EU; Scottish Affairs; and the Speaker’s Works of Art Committee. In addition to this Sally-Ann is an Officer of the All Parliamentary Groups for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities; Hospitality and Tourism; Fisheries; Equitable Life; and Ending Homelessness.
Sally-Ann has committed to five key pledges that she will drive to deliver whilst she is the MP for Hastings and Rye:
1. Eradicating rough sleeping and homelessness;
2. Providing the best start in life for every child with a great education;
3. Delivering improvements to local transport infrastructure;
4. Improving early intervention to protect and support vulnerable children and families;
5. Ensuring businesses, residents and the fishing communities get a great deal as we leave the EU.
