Lars Kramm

Micklegate Ward Councillor

Lars Kramm

Lars Kramm is a trained lawyer, specialising in environmental and European law. He has been a member of his native German Green Party for 15 years, serving in different functions including as a Green Councillor for five years on his hometown’s city council. He has worked as a researcher and lecturer and was an NGO delegate at the Doha international climate change conference in 2012. He works currently as a manager for a York based retail company.

Lars says: “Micklegate has for years been a centre of Green activities and it is an area that means a great deal to me. I am very grateful for the trust that the residents of Micklegate placed in me and I am very happy, but the hard work to meet the expectations as a ward councillor has now started. In our political rainbow ward it is essential to work together and have all residents in mind, not just the ones that voted for us”.

I've asked my local candidates to stand up for cycling and walking ahead of the upcoming #GE2019. Will you join me in asking your candidates to do the same? 🚲via @WeAreCyclingUK https://action.cyclinguk.org/page/50940/action/1?en_chan=tw&locale=en-GB&ea.tracking.id=&en_ref=110210543

#VoteGreen2019

Really feels like #Copmanthorpe is #GE2019 marginal. @yorklibdems slightly ahead in paper, but just had @labouryork canvasser at door. Both have nice charts & narratives why tactical vote should go to them, but it's not about uniting oppostion but winning the 29,356 Tory voters
