David Di Palma - The Independent Politician & Equality Rights Activist

The Independent Politician & Equality Rights Activist  – 2010 to Present Day  

With the increasing desire to support many more people and to raise awareness of the difficulties people face on a much wider scale, David’s Independent Political Career began in 2010. David was frustrated with mainstream politicians from all political parties, with them not understanding the most vulnerable members of society and their needs. David, not one for sitting about doing nothing about it, set out on a mission to become elected and to ensure underrepresented groups are proportionately represented at every level of government and for reasonable adjustments to be made in accordance with legislation. In 2011 David secured his first victory when he was co-opted onto Glenfield Parish Council by his peers. Four years later at the Local Elections of 2015 David was elected to Glenfield Parish Council and to Braunstone Town Council in addition to nominated and appointed the candidate at Croft Hill (Blaby District Council); coming second to the blue candidate. In the Local Elections of May 2019 David was nominated and appointed the Independent Candidate for Winstanley Ward, Braunstone Town (Blaby District Council) defeating the Braunstone Town Mayor in the election and was elected to Leicester Forest East Parish Council and Braunstone Town Council respectively. In 2021 David was the independent candidate for Braunstone Division for Leicestershire County Council. David placed third overall and defeated two mainstream political parties. To this day David continues to campaign to ensure that all councillors understand and embrace the diversity and equality agenda and to understand the fundamental principles of representing the diverse communities that councillors  have been elected to serve, regardless of political persuasion and political party membership.
