June Tranmer

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.

Look who I bumped into yesterday! We chatted about our shared love of #trees. Please support @Purpleman / White man's fundraising efforts for Treemendous York tree planting in #York. We need many more trees for #shade #shelter #wildlife #birdnests #floodprevention #cleanair

You might have spotted that I’m getting behind @TheGreenParty - especially in #BristolWest where @Carla_Denyer has a real chance. If you want to see another brilliant #Green MP in parliament please share!

We don’t just face a #ClimateEmergency. Nature is in crisis too. 40% of UK species have declined in last 50 yrs

That’s why I’m launching a New Deal for Nature this wk

Pls share photos of what nature means to you. I’ll start with pic of rare blue rampion on Downs

Exactly David. It could be so much better handled. As for locking in the Shambles Market traders until 8pm on Thurs - Sat, it's v harsh. These people are self employed but are not allowed to decide for themselves when they can leave to go home. Have to be back at crack of dawn.

We are in a planetary emergency and we are running out of time! In TEN DAYS the UK will head to the polls for the #GE2019. This is our chance to change everything, starting with those in power. Make this a #ClimateElection. Vote for our future, vote for a #GreenNewDeal.
