Statement to voters
I joined the Green Party in 1997 and co-founded West Central London Green Party in time for the first London Assembly elections, and am now its Chair.
I have worked mostly in financial management in industry and the charity sector. Until early 2018, I was also a part-time carer for my elderly parents who were holocaust survivors from Poland which, I believe, influenced both my approach to universal human rights and my support for the EU as a force for peace. Since the 1980s I was also very active on Israeli-Palestinian peace and human rights issues in various Jewish and joint Jewish-Palestinian organisations.
My main areas of interest regarding this election are housing, the Green New Deal and a 2nd referendum.
Born in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, my family moved to Manchester and then London in my teens. I’ve lived in Westminster, a short walk away from Kensington, ever since. I have a BA (Econ) Hons from Manchester University and an MSc in Information Systems from the LSE.
