Judith Rutnam is the Green Party candidate for Fulwood Ward in the local elections on May 2nd 2024 

I moved to Fulwood in 2004 and I’ve been a Green Party member for 25 years.

My career has been in community advice services in Sheffield and Derbyshire, working in benefits, debt and housing law to ensure that vulnerable people had access to the information and support they needed.

I have also been a farm worker, a volunteer, a service manager, a law lecturer at Sheffield Hallam, and had my own small business. Recently, I was a support worker at a further education college.

I am currently volunteering with the Wildlife Trust, and campaigning for safer roads and better public transport in Fulwood and across Sheffield. I am working with others to ensure that local housing plans are truly sustainable, with opportunities for the wider community, without damaging the vital green spaces in the neighbourhood.

If elected, I would be motivated to work alongside Green Party colleagues, listening to every resident, promoting fairness and the protection of our natural resources  to make Sheffield a forward-thinking, egalitarian city – a good place to be for all communities.“Greens are also consistent supporters of public transport with routes to serve communities and key users, like older people, who need bus stops close to where they live. Constant battles are being fought in Fulwood as First and Stagecoach make profit-motivated decisions to change routes and services. People here should have access to bus services to take them to the two big hospitals – the council should be in control of the buses. I support the retention of threatened healthy street trees that help us breathe clean air and make our communities more than just concrete and cars.”
