Joel Gilbert is the Green Party candidate for Shiregreen & Brightside ward in the Local Elections on May 4th 2023
As a cover primary school teacher my main passion and priority is education. I work regularly in schools in this area and know the difference good-quality, supportive and engaging learning environments can have on children’s lives.
My other priorities include ensuring people have adequate access to local services, such as opticians, dentists and decent public transport, so everybody is able to receive the treatment, care and opportunities we deserve.
Finally, everyone should be able to feel safe and take pride in our local area, whether this is through reducing anti-social behaviour or improving the street scenes we see every day. As your local councillor, I will work as hard as I can to make sure these priorities are realised in Shiregreen and Brightside.
