Rosie Baker

Micklegate Ward Councillor

I have been a committed, hard-working Green in York for 3.5 years, having come from Jersey where I was a founder member of the Reform Jersey Party, and my campaigning for a fairer and more democratic society really began. I won over 1,500 votes in Micklegate, an area I firmly believe is “the green Heart of York” when she stood in the 2017 by-election and came 2nd at the ballot-box. I support many local activist groups such as Planet Southbank, St Nick’s, One Planet York, York Independent Living Network and YorSpace housing. Since January 2019 I have been running the Pay-As-You-Feel cafe, a ‘Real Junk Food Project’ at Southlands. My background is in research for public policy, with experience in disability education support and for a year I was Research Assistant for York Food Poverty Alliance (now York Food Justice Alliance.)

Listening to @Keir_Starmer on @BBCr4today

Prime minister says “build, build, build” including 4,000 miles of new roads.

Opposition agrees and says “jobs, jobs, jobs”.

No one saying “climate” or “Green recovery” even once. #WeakWeakWeak

@stephendfenton @HobMoorFriends @hobmoortrees Stephen could you look into Hazel Courts regime for cutting the grass on the ramparts. Seems as though they continue with what they've always done and don't want to know about leaving areas uncut.

In May 2019, we declared a climate emergency with the ambition of being carbon neutral by 2030.
Are you passionate about sustainability with the drive to tackle the challenges of climate change?
Help us realise our future as a carbon neutral city ➡️

Even though the crisis has exposed flaws in the market/state order, post-capitalist institutional change is not inevitable. Join David Bollier's 22 June webinar on the commons.
