Green Party offer future generations a decent life

Tim Dawes has been nominated by Havant Green Party to once again stand as their general election candidate in the borough. Tim commented:

“I am pleased and honoured to confirm that Havant Green Party have selected me to be their candidate in the forthcoming General Election. Someone has to speak up for a better world and decent future for our children and our children’s children, and I will be doing so to the very best of my ability.”

South East Greens are also highlighting what they will do for local residents as the county election campaign gets under way. Jonathan Essex, Chair of the South East Green Party and a County Councillor in Surrey, said:

“Greens have a vision for the South East that’s very different from the other political parties. We need an economy that works for everyone at local level – providing decent jobs for residents and transport that’s accessible for all. We want sound environmental policy, social justice, and high standards of transparency.

Wherever they live in Havant, residents will be able to vote Green, and there will be a record number of Green candidates standing in the South East – 370 candidates which is an 80% increase on 2013. This is vitally important in giving voters a Green option. There are Green candidates in over 70% of county divisions – 14% more than UKIP.

“Greens elected onto local councils are already working hard with local residents to make a real difference in their areas. More Greens on county councils will help us achieve greater things.”
