June Tranmer

Vice-Chair & Ward Team Coordinator

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.

The last couple of months I’ve been working on a documentary to showcase the devastating effects of child food poverty in the UK. This is not about me it’s about offering a platform for voices to be heard. We’ve been ignoring the issue for too long, now is the time for change.

The week is finally here - it’s Chocolate Truffle Season for our Christmas Chocolates - available to last to be enjoyed this Christmas! Our real chocolates with real flavours and fab ingredients!!!

Wow - e-cargo cycles really are win, win win. Fascinating thread by @pedalmeapp. @CityofYork @AndyDAgorne imagine the benefits to York if e-cargo cycles did the last few miles of deliveries... @YorkCycle https://twitter.com/pedalmeapp/status/1331228361104961537

Today is #AskHerToStand Day.

Two years ago @midlandmax asked me to stand as a target candidate. Now, I'm a councillor in Solihull, and chair of the #AssociationOfGreenCouncillors

If you know any talented women who may not have considered standing - ask them! @TheGreenParty https://twitter.com/ManduReid/status/1330114558221021184

It’s 102 years since the Qualification of Women Act gave women over 21 the right to stand for Parliament

Since then, only just over 10% of MPs elected have been women

That’s why it’s so important to #AskHerToStand & #SignUpToStand

We urgently need @5050Parliament
