South Tyneside Green Party is proud to announce that their Parliamentary candidates for the 2017 General Election have now been selected
Shirley Ford has been selected for the South Shields constituency
"I am delighted to have been selected by our local party to fight this election here in South Shields. This is my home and I am standing up for what matters. People are telling me that what really matters are real jobs for themselves and their families, our hospital and many other public services being under threat and our schools having to charge to make ends meet. I hear so many times that voting doesn’t matter, that your vote here doesn’t count but every vote does make a difference if we stand together for the common good"
David Herbert has been selected for the Jarrow constituency
"It's great to have the chance to tell people about the green opportunities presented by Brexit and the chance to really take back control for everyone's benefit. For a safe environment with clean air to breathe, decent affordable housing and people earning enough to feed their family. The jobs of the future are in renewable and sustainable industries such as electric vehicles, solar and wind energy. Jarrow is in a great position to take advantage of these opportunities but only if our political leaders take up the challenge"
