Statement to voters
I am the Green Party candidate for Charles Dickens ward and I believe urgent action needs to be taken to address Portsmouth’s poor air quality, lack of affordable housing, homelessness and lack of support for those who are struggling. We need a cleaner, greener environment to improve the health and wellbeing of residents. We need more affordable housing, better protection for private tenants and intensive support for those experiencing homelessness. Education should be properly funded for all our young people, as well as ensuring there are opportunities for adults to return to education and improve their life-chances.
We need to invest in schemes to improve public transport, cycling and walking in the city to reduce pollution and promote better health. I have lived in Portsmouth for over 20 years and I am committed to ensuring this city becomes a better environment for all residents.
