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.

Side by side with @natalieben in Trafalgar Square yesterday. Watching her in Parliament today. A Green in the room or at the table, in the Town Square or Town Hall, in the House of Commons or House of Lords, changes everything. https://t.co/GBYtbBfcTd

So Government plans to give MPs just 90 minutes on Saturday to decide whether to accept the Prime Minister’s sell-out or approve a No Deal Brexit

This is contempt for Parliament, contempt for our democracy and contempt for our country’s future.

"They paved paradise and put up a parking lot."

But the UK no paradise, rather a grossly nature-depleted land.

We can't afford to lose more #biodiversity and #bioabundance
