Jenny Jones, the Green Party’s representative in the House of Lords and member of the London Assembly, visited York on Saturday (11th April). She spoke to Green Party members in the morning about working in the House of Lords, in tandem with Caroline Lucas’s work in the House of Commons. Jenny also took part in a Q&A session with members, her answers proving informative, interesting, and entertaining.
In the afternoon she visited St. Helen’s Square in York, leafleting and talking to voters, which proved a success, garnering lots of positive support. After leaving York, Jenny tweeted: “Many thanks to York Greens for such a warm welcome – lovely city, lovely Greens!”
In a political climate that sees many politicians seem far removed from voters, these direct interactions are becoming increasingly important. York’s Green Party representatives will be continuing to be out and about talking to voters in the run-up to 7th May.
