Statement to voters
The Becontree resident shares a similar vision with so many people across the country of a fairer and more equal society, and seeks to make herself, and The Green Party, a home for those that have been consistently left behind and forgotten by the major parties.
Shannon says of her candidacy: “I am proud to represent the Green Party as the candidate for Barking. Whilst living in Barking I have come to see that many of the issues that local people are facing can be addressed by the Green Party. Whether it is the desperate need for more social housing, affordable rents, or having clean air to breathe, the Green Party and myself represent a genuine choice for those that want to see a change for the better.”
“We have a right to breath clean air and we have a right to public green areas which benefit local residents and our wildlife.”
In addition to housing, air quality, and environmental protection, Shannon wants to see the implementation of a genuine living wage that people can actually live on in return for their work. At the local level, she supports improvements to local infrastructure as well as encouraging and supporting local business as a bedrock of the local community.
The Green party has stood in this constituency since 2005 and in 2015 managed to more than double the number of votes they achieved in 2010.
