Sue Morton was one of the 3 Green local election candidates for Walkley Ward on 5th May 2016.
As a well respected member of her community, Sue is a supporter of a range of local initiatives, including being a co-founder and ex-Chair of the Walkley Community Forum, and was Chairperson/Governor at Walkley Primary School for 12 years.
“I am standing again as a candidate for the local elections in May 2016 as the result in 2015 has shown that there is a strong Green vote in the ward. People are ready for change and with my colleagues Chris McMahon and Liam Hardy and the support of a enthusiastic local team we will work hard to turn Walkley Green!
I have lived in the ward since 1978 and take a keen interest in local issues, particularly traffic and transport – I have instigated the placing of two air quality monitors from the East End Quality of Life initiative to measure the levels of nitrogen dioxide on South Road and Fir Street. I also volunteer at ASSIST, the Sheffield charity supporting refused asylum seekers who face destitution due to Britain’s harsh immigration policies.
I joined the Green Party as it stands for fairness, a just society, a healthy environment and transparency in government. If I were to be elected to Sheffield City Council I would be true to these values.”
