Medway Greens offer real alternative to larger parties #Medwayelects19

A3_artwork_for_corex_1024x1024Medway Greens will be offering a real alternative for those fed-up with the “main” parties by standing 16 candidates in 14 wards across Medway in the Council elections in May, allowing many people in Medway to vote for change. 

Clive Gregory who is standing in Peninsula ward alongside Sonia Hyner and Mohammad Ahmad says:

“We get a sense from speaking to people on doorsteps that they are fed up with Medway Council not listening, particularly in relation to housing development. The Council is currently planning to destroy hugely valuable agricultural land which will be particularly necessary after Brexit.  Developments are going up of the wrong types of homes in the wrong places with much of the development targeted at encouraging additional migration from London. Many of these homes are unaffordable to those who live locally, while people tragically remain homeless. Efforts to reduce traffic congestion and air pollution are limited and people feel that much more should be done to address climate change.

“The Brexit shambles has shown that the confrontational two party system is broken. Locally it’s little better with those currently in control thinking their ideas are the only ones that count. It’s time that all voices and opinions were represented in Medway. We are happy to work with Councillors from other parties in finding real alternatives.  Ultimately both locally and nationally the only way to fix our broken political system is to introduce a fairer voting system.  Members of Medway Green Party have worked hard in recent years in urging voters to start voting for democracy itself. Electing a Green Councillor is a real alternative and may be the first and most important step in bringing about that change”.
