Daisy Ford has resigned from the Independent Network’s Executive to concentrate on her career after eight months of voluntary involvement. She was the only member of the Executive to not be standing for election this year, meaning that she was able to provide level-headed input and guidance to the Network from an objective perspective. Her insight into the student vote and youth movements was extremely valuable in the run-up to the election.
Daisy says, 'I have very much enjoyed my time with the IN, particularly during these exciting times in British politics. I have been amazed and inspired by the number of people who have come forward to the IN over the past months, ready to participate in democracy, to offer their communities an alternative choice and to try to make a real difference.'
She continues, 'Unfortunately as I move from studying to work once again, I will not be able to give the Network the time and consideration it deserves from its Exec members. I wish the best of luck to the Network, and look forward to seeing it progress and grow over the years to provide a truly independent forum for independent minds.'
Daisy is currently studying MSc Innovation, Creativity and Entrepreneurship at Newcastle University. She studied Politics, Philosophy and English as an undergraduate at Durham University and has a wide range of experience in political research and campaigning.
Daisy Ford recently helped her father, Steven Ford, in his election campaign in Hexham, Northumberland.
The Independent Network thanks Daisy for her help and involvement and wishes her the best of luck for the future.
