Millicent Scott for Hammersmith
Millicent Scott is our parliamentary candidate for Hammersmith. She is born in Hammersmith and grew up in Shepherd’s Bush. She went to St Peter’s Primary School in Hammersmith and then St Paul’s Girls’ School on Brook Green. She is a graduate of the University of London and University of Edinburgh. After several years living in other places she returned to Hammersmith eight years ago.
Her reason for standing as a parliamentary candidate is her strong personal commitment to political change. Millicent spent many years campaigning to engage a more representative and more diverse range of people in politics. She knows we need more younger people, women, people from non-white backgrounds and other under-represented identities in government.
In a democracy the power lies with the people. That’s why I want to see a wider range of people in politics. Through building a fairer society I firmly believe we can build a stronger economy and provide opportunity for all.
