Rewarded For Green Things
May 4th 2017 will be the first County Council election in which I won’t be facing opposition from a Green candidate.
I haven’t entered into any electoral pact with them. I am hoping it is because they recognise that I am one of the opponents with a stronger record of speaking up on green issues and actually delivering environmental projects.
I have done a lot of work, as a Member of the New Forest National Park Authority, supporting habitat restoration works, promoting cycling and walking, protecting the most sensitive sites in the National Park, speaking up on air quality issues.
I also have a track record of constructing board walks, with ponds, saving an area of ancient woodland, challenging the Tories poor performance on waste and recycling, as well as my work on the Eling to Marchwood cycle route.
I don’t know if the three hundred or so people who voted “Green” at the last election, will switch their vote to me, rather than the Labour or Tory candidates – but I am obviously hoping so.
I think I can do a lot more yet for the local environment and am very willing to take on board ideas !
