Statement to voters
Electing Natalie Bennett as the first Green MP in the North will deliver a bold independent voice for Sheffield in Parliament.
You have a clear choice in Sheffield Central. There is no risk of the Tories or Lib Dems getting in here.
Caroline Lucas, the first Green MP, has been a powerful force and a real opposition to this government. We need to change from outdated two-party politics and have representation that reflects our rich, diverse community in Sheffield.
Natalie was Leader of the Green Party from 2012 to 2016, taking part in the televised leaders debates in 2015. That year, the Greens won more than 1 million votes.
She brings the experience of decades of campaigning for change on three continents, and the knowledge of what’s being done well and badly from cities and towns across the UK.
Natalie’s made her home in the Sheffield Central constituency, in Norfolk Park, and works hard full-time with Sheffield’s Green councillors to improve all our lives.
