Statement to voters
"Melodey has lived in the borough her entire life. She is currently employed by the Co-op and has qualifications and experience in the leisure and tourism industry. She has also worked in a special education needs school.
As a parent, education and youth provision are of particular interest, as is the environment. She is a keen environmentalist and a familiar face amongst the anti-fracking community.
“I am really worried about the way this government is selling off important services like the NHS, a service I have grown to appreciate more than ever of late. And the academisation of schools is a real concern.
“I am also worried about fracking and the risks it poses to our water supply. It is not the answer to our energy problems – our focus should be on clean, renewable energy.
“We need a change and the Green Party offers that change.”"
This statement was added by Melodey Walker, their team, or by a Democracy Club volunteer, based on information published by the candidate elsewhere.
