Statement to voters

I’ve lived in the Wakefield district since 2021, after moving from Mirfield.

Full statement

I’ve moved around a lot, but my family have always had strong roots in West Yorkshire, and especially in Pontefract, Castleford, and the surrounding villages. I work as a stock controller at a food and wine importer, and I do a fair bit of volunteering in my free time, including for Wakefield LitFest. Coming from a working-class family, it was my experiences with social inequality that drew me to the Green Party. That’s why I’m standing as the Green Party candidate for Pontefract, Castleford and Knottingley– to give you the chance to vote for fairer politics.
