Medway Council Elections on May 5th – Greens are 4th Largest Candidate Pool

Trish Marchant says: For the first time Medway Greens are standing candidates across the towns in the up-coming local elections. 12 wards of 14 candidates will get the chance to vote for fairness, for equality and for protection of our green spaces. Campaigning on your behalf against the devastating cuts to public sector funding and undemocratic decisions such as enforcing city status.

Short biographies of our candidates can be found here

As well as some new faces you will be able to vote for last years general election candidates, Trish Marchant (Rochester West), Simon Marchant (Gillingham South) and Dave Arthur (Luton & Wayfield), as well as the double  By-election candidate, Steven Keevil (River). We have Radio Kent gardening expert Doug Goodyer (Gillingham North) and Edith East (Walderslade) ,Greenham Common campaigner and local activist, who hits her 90th birthday this year.  If you don’t think power hungry Rehman Chisti MP should be re-elected as a councillor then vote for Andy Rogers (Rainham Central) who played a big part in the Stop Kingsnorth campaign alongside Mary Smith (Rochester West) and David Davison (Strood Rural). Candidate Chris Price (River) is active on green spaces alongside artist Tina Lawlor Mottram (Twydall), and newbies to elections Dave Heritage, Tony Major and our press officer Richard Patey are yours to choose in Rochester East, Rochester South & Horsted and Peninsula respectively. Check out our website in a few days for bios and photos  of the candidates.
