I have been a member of the Green Party since 2007 but was a local supporter for many years before that, since 1996. I have lived in York for most of my life, since 1972, and have strong family ties to the city, in particular Guildhall and Micklegate wards. I believe strongly that the Green Party is the only party that offers a sensible vision for the future of our country and our city. I think there are a lot of people who are disillusioned with politics and politicians and we can show them that they don’t have to give up hope. Show them that we really care about local issues as well as national and international ones. And that we are willing to get stuck in and help when and where things need doing. We stand up for Equality and Diversity – increasingly needed in these times of scapegoating and suspicion of those who are different.

I am an enthusiastic networker; a member of the York Environment Forum, The Mental Health Forum, Mental Health Action York, One Planet York and the Carers Forum, among others. My business has been health care for the past 30 years and I am passionate about making complementary health care (genuinely preventive healthcare) accessible to all of York’s citizens, working alongside the NHS medical services, which need protecting and safeguarding for everyone’s future health. I am an innovative social entrepreneur, providing a launchpad for numerous practitioners to start their own business under the umbrella of The Healing Clinic, and a meeting space for local groups in Briar House Resources, while also linking up with other social enterprises and voluntary organisations in York. Living just on the edge of Guildhall (in Fishergate) my business is in Guildhall and my grandfather was born in Guildhall. So, I have a lot of affection for this area of York in particular.

It would be a privilege to be able to represent the people of York on City of York Council, bringing more Green perspective to the discussions and debates, working as collaboratively as possible with members from the other parties. However much the other parties try to look Green though, only the Green Party is genuinely Green.

In the past and present, the mental health agenda has been set by professionals and government NOT Survivors. @MHResist demand survivors agenda first, tackling the twin injustices of an inadequate mental health service + a punitive welfare state #WeDemand https://t.co/TEB6VWUCep

Utterly depressing to see @theresa_may trying to sell her deal using immigrant-bashing UKIP rhetoric.

EU migrants make up 1 in 10 NHS doctors & 1 in 12 NHS nurses.

Without them, the NHS would collapse.

My EU colleagues are so bloody fantastic - and so desperately needed.

Sorry you had to hear this. @TheGreenParty has long been saying "we celebrate #freemovement, which enriches all of our lives". If you haven't heard that, it's because UK not yet a #democracy, with parliament reflecting people's views https://t.co/gHjIZmqI1a

The IEA, lest we forget, was the subject of an @UE sting earlier this year that suggested the org would allow prospective funders to influence its research — including big agri-businesses that want environmental regulations slashed https://t.co/yDpiPUl06m

The President of The UK Faculty of Public Health, Professor John Middleton and senior WHO public health toxicologist, Professor Patrick Saunders, visited residents near Preston New Road #fracking site this afternoon to hear their health concerns.
