Elections take place on 4th May for our representatives on KCC. Since the Boundary Commission changed electoral boundaries, Thanet is divided into 5 electoral divisions for CC elections: Birchington & Rural, Broadstairs, Ramsgate, Margate and Cliftonville. We are standing paper candidates in 4 of these divisions:
From a Labour defection in Exeter, and a seat taken from UKIP in the Forest of Dean, to 2 Councillors elected within six weeks in Knowsley; the Green Party is on a winning streak!
The success of Green Councillors across the UK is changing the political make up of local politics: we hold the balance of power in Worcester City Council, we’re the official opposition in Islington, and we’re in coalition in Stroud. This increasing support is incredibly humbling; thank you!
Green Party Co-Leader Jonathan Bartley just launched our Local Elections Campaign in Worcester and the message was loud and clear: “Green Councillors make a meaningful difference, improving people’s lives in all sorts of ways, from securing housing for the most vulnerable to championing renewable energy projects. We’ve enjoyed a string of council by-election successes recently and now we’re fielding a record number of candidates in the May local elections.”
