Statement to voters
Pippa Bartolotti is the longest serving Wales Green Party Leader, and is currently Deputy Leader of Wales Green Party and candidate for Newport West in the 2017 General Election.
Pippa is an energetic 63 and has lived in Newport for 31 years. Her 3 children are grown up and she has a grandson living in Germany. Pippa is a qualified designer who has worked at director level in the fashion industry, the electronics industry and software. She has worked for the WDA where her chief expertise was in growing small businesses. Her passions are music, opera and growing food.
“Newport doesn’t need the tired old politics of yesterday. I’m standing for clean modern energy owned by the people, a publicly owned transport system and free university education. I’m against ideological austerity and for investment in an economy fit for the future. I firmly believe that there are not enough MP’s prepared to stand up and challenge the status quo of an eternal boom and bust economy, dirty energy and bad education. As the MP for Newport West I will be an outspoken advocate for the change to a modern, clean, healthy, economy which works for everyone.”
Pippa is also a long term campaigner for human rights and in particular works to highlight the plight of Palestinian and Tibetan people. She has driven in a convoy of humanitarian aid to Gaza.
