GREEN PARTY LAUNCHES GENERAL ELECTION CANDIDATES

Kent Green Party has launched 9 general election candidates [PICTURE ON THIS SITE]. This is a dramatic increase from just 4 candidates in Kent in the last general election in 2005. It is possible that more candidates will be adopted before the general election. Steve Dawe, Press Officer of Kent Green Party, explains:

“Kent Green Party has so far adopted 9 candidates for Kent and Medway parliamentary seats. These are as follows:

ASHFORD Steve Campkin
CANTERBURY Dr Geoff Meaden
FAVERSHAM-MID Kent Professor Tim Valentine
GILLINGHAM AND RAINHAM Patricia Marchant
GRAVESEND Richard Crawford
MAIDSTONE & THE WEALD Stuart Jeffery
ROCHESTER AND STROOD Simon Marchant
TONBRIDGE AND MALLING Steve Dawe
TUNBRIDGE WELLS Dr Hazel Dawe

“Web pages for all of these candidates can be found at www.kentgreenparty.org

“Kent Green Party has increased the number of General election candidates because of the very real possibility of Green MPs being elected at this coming election and because of increased membership and funds. The Green Party beat Labour in the South East Region in the 2009 European Elections. Our policy of a Green New Deal, building upon Green employment priorities, is also far more attractive than the ill-considered public spending cuts the Conservative and Labour parties are promising. Paying off the Public Sector deficit should be slow, and must not prevent spending on energy efficiency, renewable energy, improving public transport and ensuring a new emphasis on fairness through improved social justice.”
