I joined the Green Party about 2 years ago, drawn by the principled leadership of Caroline Lucas and the well researched and holistic policies the party offered on tackling Climate change and Inequalities in society.
I am a Chartered Accountant and Treasurer by profession and have worked in retail, fashion and distribution sectors for the last 25 years. I move to the NorthWest from London to achieve a more balanced lifestyle and get outdoors in our beautiful countryside, around the same time that I joined the Green Party. I feel inspired by the dedication, activism and knowledge of my colleagues in the Stockport Green Party.
By casting a Green vote in the local election, you could signal your desire for change in your local area.
Electing your first Green councillor to the Stockport council will create room for debate in key areas such as land use, flood management and recycling of waste.
