I’m John Cannan and I am 62 years old. I was born in Hastings and have lived here all of my life apart from six years spent in the North East of England. My Father was a Postman, my Mum worked from home, and my sister and I were brought up in what was then known as a council house.
After a long career in various administrative roles (in the Civil Service, National Health Service, and East Sussex County Council) I now work as a support worker for the Seaview Project. The latter is the best and most rewarding job I have ever done.
I’m standing because becoming a Councillor offers the realistic prospect of making meaningful positive changes for the community. As stated above, I have experience of working in many roles and, together with my life experience, I feel I am well placed to contribute to those changes.
I’m passionate about fairness and believe all deserve the same chances in life.
