I was born in Bishop Auckland and now live in Stanhope working as a digital marketing strategist, helping companies find ways to make the best use of the internet.
We live in a pivotal age, not only with domestic issues such as the future of the NHS, the increasing wealth divide or stress and well-being at work, but also on the larger much more pressing issue facing us all – global climate change.
I’m standing as a candidate because I am concerned about our future.
We don’t have another planet to move to, so it’s crucial we take better care of this one. Our record of poor stewardship of the planet we all depend on must be reversed.
Micro-plastics are now found in our food and our water supplies and we are beginning to research where they collect inside us and how seriously they may affect our health. We are on the brink of a mass extinction event and only the Green Party is prepared to make the radical changes necessary to safeguard the future for our children and grand-children and protect the environment from unfettered exploitation.
I am standing to give you the chance to sweep aside the old style politics and vote for the future of us all. The time to vote Green is now.
