I have been selected as the Green Party candidate for Reigate constituency in the General Election next month.
I have served as an active councillor in Redhill since 2010 and am a chartered civil engineer and environmentalist. I will fight to protect our Green Belt and Surrey countryside, for fairer rail and bus fares and for planning rules requiring zero carbon and truly affordable homes.
We need a fairer Britain and tough action on climate change. This means shifting from our throw-away society, standing against oil drilling and airport expansion and pushing for properly funded public services – youth and children’s centres, social care, schools and the NHS.
In this safe Conservative seat, I urge people to vote for the change you believe in. For me that is about sorting out the housing crisis and protecting public services, real action on climate change and remaining in the EU. A Green vote would send a strong message that we need a new politics, with a clear plan that works for all, within our planet’s limits.
I am raising money to help pay for the costs of our general election campaign in Reigate and neighbouring East Surrey. If you can contribute, thank you very much.
