Statement to voters
Jeremy is your Green Party county council candidate for Abbey Ward.
He is a local campaigner and the Dean of Emmanuel College.
* Long-Term Local Resident
* Dean of Emmanuel College
* Former Governor of Parkside School
* Well-Respected Local Campaigner
As a local activist he has led a campaign within the University of Cambridge for it to divest entirely from fossil fuels, and as a chaplain he was the first in the UK to say publicly that he’d conduct blessing ceremonies for same-sex couples. Jeremy has been pivotal in standing up against road closures, healthcare cuts, and unfair fee hikes for those living on the river.
As a long-term resident of this area, Jeremy is all too aware of the issues we face: "congestion and pollution, education, the NHS, homelessness and the cost of living here. We can't wait for Labour or the Lib Dems any longer." Jeremy wants to use "independent Green thinking", not the punitive approaches of other parties, to improve the area. "This is Cambridge, we can find intelligent solutions to solve problems without creating new ones."
His priorities as County Councillor would be:
- Facing up to the Climate Emergency with real action
- Protecting nature and green spaces for everyone
- Building for the future (with very high environmental standards for houses built)
- Revolutionising transport in Cambridge to be low emissions, environmentally friendly, affordable, accessible for all.
- Focusing on community to reduce inequality
