Statement to voters

Born in Somerset, Jon Cousins has lived and worked in Glastonbury for over twenty years.

Full statement

 In that time, he's helped to set-up a number of local groups, charities, and social enterprises, including Avalon Community Energy, Plotgate Community Farm, and Glastonbury Information Centre. A seasoned community activist and organiser, he's a Board Member of the Glastonbury Town Deal and works as the Project Lead with a Big Local. A Town Councillor since 2011 and Mendip District Councillor from 2019-23, he has been Mayor of Glastonbury four times. A prominent Glastonbury Councillor, Jon's shown the difference Greens can make when elected: banning chemical herbicides/pesticides on council land, declaring a Climate and Ecological Emergency, becoming an 'Earth Protector Town', employing a Climate Emergency and Resilience Officer, purchasing the Council's first electric-vehicle, successfully reducing the Council's carbon footprint by 39% between June 2021-June 2023; cutting annual running costs by over £4,000. When the banks were closing in Glastonbury, Jon actively supported 'The Last Bank Standing' campaign, and -- as Mayor -- was key to the Nationwide opening a new branch in the town. Jon stood as the Parliamentary Candidate for the Wells Constituency in 2015 -- increasing the Green Vote by 3%.
