Tim Valentine & Alastair Gould were elected for Boughton & Courtenay ward in the Swale Borough Council elections 2019 and are already making positive change in Swale. On Kent County Council, Green Party councillor Martin Whybrow is doing a fantastic job of holding the Conservative-run council to account for cuts to socially necessary bus services, children’s centres, the voluntary sector and public health services. Our MEP for the South East of England, Alex Phillips, is our strong voice in the European Parliament. And, of course, Green MP Caroline Lucas is showing what can be achieved by electing a principled, hard-working Green to Parliament.
Swale Green Party hope to win seats on Kent County Council. In 2019 we stood more candidates for Swale Borough Council than ever before, and won our best ever result. We are now represented on Swale District Council and aim to have representation on Faversham Town Council after the next elections.
So, we need lots of enthusiastic, committed and hard-working candidates! We are particularly keen to ensure diversity amongst our candidates.
Candidates must be paid-up members of the Green Party and support its main aims and policies.
