Rachael Milne

I embrace the opportunity to stand for the Green Party.
I am a hardworking, motivated and caring 39 year old wife and mother.
I was brought up in Biddick Hall, later living on Whiteleas Way for a time. Born and bread in South Shields.
With a passion for my Town.

Qualities I will bring are good communication skills, a friendly and easy going personality with a strong sense of what’s right.

Working as vice chair with South Tyneside Homes (STH) on the Scrutiny panel for 6 years gave me a valuable insight into preparing reports and making recommendations to improve services for STH tenants.

As a qualified Arboraculturalist I helped form South Tyneside Tree Action Group (STTAG) in 2018. We have been very active trying to save mature trees across the borough From petitions, submitting objections at planning stages, speaking to local communities, press releases to social media campaigns. We speak with officials too. We have had success and trees are still standing because of STTAG.

I’m want to see fairness, openness, transparency and accountability rolled out for our councillors. We need positive change. A strong voice for social justice. A broad representation in sorely needed in our council. As your councillor I would work tirelessly to improve your area and listen to residents.
