Statement to voters
34-year-old Will lives in Wigan and works in Manchester in IT project governance. He joined the Green Party because he was frustrated with politics as usual, and wanted to stand up and help make a difference in his local community.
Will is currently Chair of the Wigan & Leigh Green Party, stood in the 2015 General Election, stood twice in local elections and most recently in the Greater Manchester Mayoral Election. Will was on the organising committee of the first ever Wigan Pride last year, and has been an active campaigner for more local democracy, for public services and for diversity in the community, taking a stand against far right groups organising in the town.
Outside politics, Will enjoys walking and reading, and has been a Wigan Athletic supporter for 25 years.
This statement was added by Will Patterson, their team, or by a Democracy Club volunteer, based on information published by the candidate elsewhere.
