Statement to voters
I'm honoured to have been selected by South Tyneside Green Party as the candidate for Jarrow in the general election on 12th December.
I've long been inspired by the Jarrow March; ordinary people marching to London, calling on Parliament to properly provide for their community. More than 80 years later, I want to use the opportunity of this election to call on both local and national government to do the same; the people of Jarrow need good jobs in a new zero carbon economy; the North East in general and the Jarrow area in particular is bursting at the seams with the engineering experience to make this a reality, and the Green Party are ready to fund it - We want to see the Government provide for this community.
In my job in the construction industry, I've been involved in the refurbishment of South Shields Town Hall and the work at Temple Park Leisure Centre. This included being seconded to South Tyneside Council for a while, so I've seen first hand the pressures Council Officers are under, and how many vital Council systems and services have been outsourced to the private sector. I'm proud to have played a part in the campaign to get Cllr David Francis elected to South Tyneside Council back in May. It's an honour to represent that same Green team of people who are working so hard for residents across the borough, to bring positive change to the Council.
This is the first time in the UK that the environmental crisis we're facing is getting anywhere near the attention it deserves in an election campaign. It's important that the people in this community who care passionately about this issue have a way to register their views in this election. If that's you, I'm honoured to stand to ensure you can join with hundreds of thousands of other people across the UK to make it clear that we can't wait for the government to act on this emergency anymore. The best way for us in the North East to make this clear statement is to vote Green, so that we send as strong a message to Parliament as the Jarrow Marchers did back in 1936.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
