Dave Applebaum was one of the 3 Green local election candidates for Dore & Totley Ward on 5th May 2016.
I live in Bradway, and work as a professor of mathematics at Sheffield University. I am standing in this election as I am seeking to join other Green councillors in implementing sustainable policies for Sheffield. This could bring our city to the national forefront as an example of a modern 21st century eco city using technological advances and renewable energy to transform lives for the better. We need to invest in local businesses to create more jobs in our community and stop the privatisation of council services. We must also focus on care and support for the weakest and most vulnerable in our society, particularly the sick and the elderly.
