York Green Party

Green Group Leader, Councillor Andy D'Agorne

Andy has represented Fishergate ward for the Green Party since being elected as one of the first Green councillors for York in 2003. He was re-elected in 2007 and 2011. He lives in the Fulford end of the ward and cycles daily across the Millennium Bridge to work at York College as the Careers Coordinator.

His interests include green energy, sustainable transport, world music (singing with a local choir), photography. His name originates from his grandfather who emigrated from Mauritius in the beginning of the 20th century.

As 'Green Group Leader' on the council he regularly meets with chief officers and attends 'Leaders' meetings and is in favour of efforts to get the parties to work together more in the interests of the city.

Andy first stood for the Green Party while living in Sheffield in the 1990s, where Green Party activists have now made the breakthrough with two councillors of their own.

Achievements he is proud of include the new LED lighting on the Millennium Bridge, cycle lanes on Fulford Rd, the safer walkway outside Broadway shops, and the recently established 'snow warden' scheme for the city.

From supporting local residents trying to block the felling of magnificent beech trees to calling for an inquiry into fire safety following the dramatic roof fire at Fulford Place flats, he has taken up issues that concern local residents as well as working to promote the 'green agenda' on the City of York Council.
