Statement to voters

I work in Walsall town centre, I work for Walsall Council. I understand the challenges the area is facing, I'm standing for parliament as I believe someone needs to speak up about these issues. It's simply wrong that people have to sleep rough. Addiction issues and mental health are significant barriers to people getting a place they can live in. It doesn't have to be this way. Everyone deserves a somewhere they can feel safe, be warm and have their own bed without having to worry where they will sleep tomorrow. Some cases aren't easy but we must provide the help and support to help people through the difficult times in their lives.

I'm standing as a candidate for the Green Party as we are the only party who will take the action needed to deal with the Climate Emergency. We will invest in every community in the UK to provide the skills and jobs with real prospects to insulate all homes and retrofit the 20% of homes that aren't fit to live in. This will bring healthier communities and ease the chronic conditions which restrict lives. It is possible to deliver a fairer, better society, we just have vote for it.

I have been active in the Green Party for many years, almost half my life by now. I've had 17 years experience working in central and local government. Local councils hold local communities together. I know that the promise that austerity and cuts are over is another Conservative lie. Walsall Council are still planning job cuts 10 years after the financial crisis. The people of Walsall deserve better.

I'm so pleased that lots of people are starting hear what we have to say and are supporting us. Voters in Walsall helped elect our first ever Green Party MEP in May. If you want Green then vote Green to get Green. This is the #climateelection so make a positive choice. If not now when?
