Statement to voters

End the complacency of "One Party State" local councils. If on 2nd May you re-elect a dominant party councillor in Tameside, you’ll make no difference to the cost-effectiveness of services in Ashton St Michaels. By voting Green, you’ll elect someone who genuinely cares about the quality of life of ALL residents, within a framework of sustainable growth and environmental protection.

While caring passionately about local challenges (whether policing, homelessness, bins, encroachment on the greenbelt or cycle lanes), Greens craft holistic policies on the big national and global issues, like climate change and sustainable energy.

Greens strive for local improvements, not just at election time. Local Greens have, all year round, been clearing lanes and waterways of flytips, resisting sales of green space, running a twenty is plenty speed campaign, and helping local primary schools be eco-aware.

Please do study our Local Government Programme (our manifesto) at the bottom of this page; I welcome any comments or questions from residents.

I have a personal interest in enhancing social cohesion and ending isolation, especially of the elderly, by improving our local "digital democracy". In practice, this means campaigning for funding of projects which increase and simplify fast internet connections and accessible devices, including those for people with sensory impairment, in all classes of dwelling.

North West Greens have selected their excellent candidates for the European Parliament elections; May looks set to be a busy month at the polling stations!

So vote Green TWICE in May, and welcome a breath of fresh air!

Aged 61, I’m a local technologist, and was a school governor in the borough. Building bridges among peoples has long been a passion, so I make no apology for having voted for our nation to remain a member of the European Union, thus to continue to enjoy the best deal and influence we have. I frequently lobby our MP to vote against disastrous Government Brexit motions which will do nothing for jobs, the economy, social enhancements, our students, our NHS and climate change. Our friends and residents from EU27 will be served by my work on the Council equally to any other.
