Samantha Hoy was the County Councillor for Wisbech North for the last few years since she won the seat in a by-election. She lost the seat to UKIP in 2013.
Samantha is also the Mayor of Wisbech and a Fenland District Councillor, representing Hill Ward.
Samantha lives in the Wisbech North Division and is passionate about the town in which she works and lives. She has worked with young people as a leader to help engage them in local issues and politics and is a Trustee for a charity that helps and supports people affected by mental illness – the Bowthorpe Association.
Samantha won a YOPEY award in 2011 (Young Person of The Year) for her work in the community and helping young people to engage with politics.
Samantha Hoy is an energetic and positive young woman who tries to use her skills and enthusiasm as a County Councillor for the town she loves. She believes that only by listening to people and being out and about in the community can a Councillor properly represent people’s views.
Samantha says: “ this area is more than just a place to live – it is shaped by the people who call it home. I do my best to work with other local people to deliver a better, brighter and more positive future for Wisbech North.”
Sam’s hard-hitting scrutiny report on Domestic Violence received national recognition and has influenced policy at county level and beyond. She was invited to meet Theresa May MP, the Home Secretary in 2012 and the work she and her scrutiny team had done was commended at the highest level.
Samantha Hoy is a twenty-six year old student, graduating this year in Social Policy. She has been interested in local politics for many years and is an active member of the community as well as of the local Conservative party. She currently lives in Wisbech with her partner, James, who works in a local factory.
