Al Arnold

Al Arnold

Alex H - Burnely

Alex Hall

Burnley Borough Council, Brunshaw Ward

"The reason I want to be a Councillor is to fix issues that matter to residents so that people can feel proud of the area they live in.
The reason I chose Greens is because I feel that Climate Change is the biggest risk to future generations, and I think that the Green Party is the political group who is doing to most to combat this issue. "

Alexander Sallons

Brighton and Hove City Council, Goldsmid Ward

Anastasia Wlaschin-Wiest

Anastasia Wlaschin-Wiest

Manchester City Council, Woodhouse Park

"I hope I can inspire more people to engage in politics, by demonstrating that people should be able to expect active and caring local politicians. If we are to enact real change, we need a movement that is inclusive and recognises that social and environmental justice must come hand in hand. I’m very proud of what’s already been achieved in Manchester, and hope we can do even more with another voice on the council."

Bradley Williams

Bradley Williams

Swindon Borough Council, St Andrews

"This election is about making a difference and having a positive impact on Swindon's residents and environment. I've felt for years that Swindon has stagnated and hasn't moved forward to become the prosperous town I know it can be! There has been a neglect of our cultural and heritage sites, and now is the time for change."

Where I am unable to represent people in the ward I pledge to still champion their views. "
