HELLO. Do you love Leeds? Do you want to work with others to change our city and communities for the better? Can we make politics work for the people again?
For too long, decisions for our area have been made by people who live far away and don’t understand our communities. We’ve been taken for granted, and our neighbourhoods and city have suffered.
We – the Green Party in ‘Hunslet and Riverside’* – are regular people, who love our city, live in the heart of the community, and have for many years worked hard with others to make things better here (click here). We’re all fairly new to politics – but we’re committed to listening to you, being a strong local voice, and working with you for positive change.
Huge thanks to all those who’ve supported us – with our year-round community work, and our election campaigns. We ran active campaigns in the last local elections in 2015 and 2016, and came a strong 2nd both years.
And we’re standing in the forthcoming local/council elections on Thursday 3rd May 2018. This year’s election is unusual (click here), and offers a golden opportunity for us to break through, and start turning our city and local communities around for good.
Whatever you think of national politics**, we need change. And WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT – on election day (Thursday 3rd May), and far beyond. THANK YOU.
* ‘Hunslet and Riverside’ is the new name for the Leeds City Council ward formerly known as ‘City and Hunslet’. It includes Beeston Hill, Hunslet, and much of the city centre. Read more here.
