I’m delighted to have been selected for Oldham West and Royton. I believe you deserve the chance to have a Green option on your ballot paper. We’re the only party leading on the Climate Crisis and we’re asking for an economy that works for all.
In May 2018, I was elected as a councillor in local elections in Trafford. Since then, we were the first council in Greater Manchester to declare a Climate Emergency and now I want to challenge Oldham Council to fully implement theirs. We need Climate Justice nationally and I will be fighting for a Green New Deal. We can start by scrapping HS2 and investing in our local trains, buses, walking and cycling.
I’ve passed policy that bans the badger cull, worked on developing policy that will see trees and wildflower areas extended and the phasing out of dangerous weed killers and pesticides. I’ve also worked with other parties to end fracking and to call for a People’s Vote. These are things I will work for in Oldham West and Royton too.
Greens all over the country are leading the fight to create a fairer economy and environment that benefit all. I’m someone who has spent time talking to residents and I’ve listened to the real concerns about air pollution, loss of greenspace and the lack of involvement for people in local decision making.
This election is our chance to send a Green message. You can elect someone who will listen and represent your concerns. You can elect someone that will hold the other parties to account.
