Statement to voters
I’m delighted to be the Green candidate for North Herefordshire. It’s time for change! The old political system is broken, and we need some fresh Green thinking.
I’m standing because I believe North Herefordshire deserves better. We need an energetic MP with strong local roots, strong principles - and a record of getting things done.
I’m proud to have served my local community as a Councillor and as an MEP. But I know that the big decisions that shape the future of this country are made in Westminster. If we want to change politics in the UK, we have to change our government.
Bill Wiggin has been MP for this area for 18 years. He’s failed to represent us effectively. It’s clearly time for change - and with my record of winning elections I’m the best-placed candidate to challenge him.
The success of the Greens in Herefordshire shows that our positive and practical ideas appeal to people all across the political spectrum. We’ve led the political fight against climate change. We’re clearly and strongly pro-Europe. And we’ve always worked for a fairer Britain.
If, like me, you believe it’s time for change, Vote Ellie!
