Statement to voters
“The Green Party are the only party who have been consistent with their core objectives. The Green Party are the only party that truly wants to protect the planet and ensure fairness and social justice for all, not as a matter of expediency but as a matter of urgency. I am proud to tell anyone who will listen that I vote Green and why.
As an average 54-year-old woman, my activism has until now been limited to ensuring I vote well, buying less and less and from as ethical suppliers as I can find, reducing my travel, etc. I also just hope! Hope that other people will start to vote more with their truest convictions rather than the least bad party.
We all know that a Green vote is not always considered a wise choice, but not because it's a bad choice. Most people I know think the Greens are great but not strong enough on the numbers and that's where I want to change things and why I have decided to step up as a candidate. I want the choice to vote Green and I want that for others who are looking for an ethical and honest party who can provide radical change to politics and avert our climate crisis. I want to start shouting up for our party and converting those who are swaying or abstaining or just lost in apathy about our current political situation globally and locally.
I am passionate and committed to the things and people I believe in. I'm also really scared about the future and that is fuelling my need to act, to come forward as a candidate and to speak up for the only real way out of our current mess and that is by giving Greens a bigger voice and presence.”
