Sheffield Green Party is aiming to gain seats in Broomhill and Central wards in the May council elections and has a full slate of candidates nominated. Sheffield Green Party Election Agent Eamonn Ward comments:
“We have worked hard to be in a position to take seats in Central and Broomhill from Labour. We won the last election in Central by 429 votes and have a strong candidate in Sharrow resident Sarah Jane Smalley, who runs her own office services business. In Broomhill our consistent work, especially against Labour’s library cuts, is the main reason Shaffaq Mohammed is not defending his seat for the Lib Dems. We were just 201 votes behind Labour last time and we have another strong candidate in Brian Webster, a PhD student who studies and works in the ward.”
“Jillian Creasy was first elected in 2004 and Greens have made a big difference during our 10 years in the council chamber. We are one of just 3 council groups – there are no Tory councillors. We have a real chance to double our councillors from 2 to 4 in this election. Green councillors have built a reputation for year-round hard work and offer clear alternatives to Labour and the Lib Dems.”
