Sheffield Green Party have opened nominations for a general election candidate in Sheffield Central constituency and welcome applications from people who are yet to join the party
This a fantastic opportunity to represent Sheffield, and a movement that puts people and the planet at the heart of decision making – building a future that is Green and equal
At a recent Sheffield Green Party meeting with Caroline Lucas, we heard the first Green Party MP in the country speak and answer lots of challenging questions.
“I would love to work with a Green colleague in the North
Sheffield already has 14 Green councillors and a majority in the wards in Sheffield Central
Having another Green MP to join me in Parliament would be such a positive step for the city”
Kaltum Rivers, Sheffield Race Equality Commissioner and former councillor for Broomhill and Sharrow Vale, said
“I hope that this opportunity to represent Sheffield will speak to a wide range of local people
As an MP you can represent the experiences, needs, views and aspirations of your communities
Having an active role in national issues means you can help to improve people’s lives, and their opportunities
I would like to encourage members of minoritised groups, as I believe representation is valuable in politics”
We are encouraging applications from local people who are committed to making Sheffield, the UK and the world more secure, sustainable and safe
If you are passionate about improving social and climate justice and have strong links to Sheffield, but aren’t yet a member, please join The Green Party so you can put yourself forward
Applications close Monday 8th August 11.59pm
Please contact Andrew Cooper for the nomination forms, or if you have any questions, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
