FOR the first time in the party’s history, PSOE Estepona has selected two British candidates for the Costa del Sol town’s elections in May.
Suzanne Brennan, a qualified youth worker, and Mary Page, a former head teacher in the UK, will run on the PSOE ticket in the upcoming elections. Both are Estepona residents with a record of community service in both the British and Spanish communities.
Ms Brennan has lived in Estepona for 12 years and previously worked in London with young offenders and young people at risk. She managed young offenders projects for the British government’s Youth Justice team, and has carried on her work in Estepona, where she has set up a group which encourages young people to care for the environment. She also volunteers at her local school, helping with English lessons.
Ms Page has been living in Estepona since 2008 and has many years of political and trade union experience, having fought parliamentary and European elections, as well as serving as town mayor, councillor, and group leader of an East Anglia district council. Until last year she was vice-president of ADANA Estepona, the dog rescue and adoption centre.
Both women form part of the PSOE team led by former mayor David Valadez and are united in their determination to make Estepona a better place to live for all residents, regardless of nationality.
