2015 General Election: Central Constituency
Sheffield Central Constituency is made of the following 5 wards. Sheffield Central (where we have all three councillors), Broomhill (where we have one councillor), Nether Edge (where we were second at the last local election), Walkley (where we were second at the last local election) and Manor Castle (where we were second at the last local election).
Make Jillian Creasy Sheffield’s first Green Party MP
With Polling Day not far away there is an exciting opportunity to elect Sheffield’s first Green Party MP. Support for the Greens has risen fast since the last General Election. In the 2014 Local Elections the Greens were the clear challengers to Labour.
The Green Party Candidate Jillian Creasy was the first Green ever elected to Sheffield City Council and is Green Party spokesperson on Health and Social Care. As a longstanding local Doctor she is well aware of issues facing the NHS in Sheffield and around the country.
“As an MP I will stand up and be counted on the difficult issues I will challenge cuts and low pay which have hurt the people on low incomes most. I will stand up for the NHS and against privatisation. I will call for an end to Students Tuition fees. Electing a Green MP in Sheffield would make a real and lasting difference, unlike electing another Labour MP” said Jillian.
At the last local elections we doubled our number of Councillors in Central Constituency from 2 to 4 and came second in the other wards. With many people leaving the Lib Dems the graph shows that it is perfectly possible for the Greens to overtake Labour.
Labour are failing in their role as the party of opposition as they promise to continue the ConDems austerity policies.
