Candidate's supporting statement
I am passionate about my home town having lived in South Shields all my life. I am very familiar with the Westoe area and as such am determined to give the people within the ward a strong voice in the Town Hall.
I am a dedicated green socialist who believes in fairness, equality and a decent standard of living for all and that this starts with a living wage and good social housing.
I believe wholeheartedly that environmental justice and social justice are inseparable, and proactively campaign with South Tyneside Green Party against fracking and Underground Coal Gasification.
I believe that sustainable green jobs are the future and seek a sizeable increase in renewable energy.
