Greens upbeat for Sheffield Council Elections

Sheffield Green Party Members are upbeat about their prospects in the city council elections.  They have been campaigning hard in Central and Broomhill wards and have been well received on the doorstep.

Cllr Creasy, who hopes to retain her seat in Central ward, said, “People recognise that the Green Councillors work hard all year round for local people.  They understand the Green’s argument that the deficit should be paid off by ending tax evasion and taxing the very wealthy and want to keep a strong Green voice on the council whichever of the main parties is running the city after May.”

Bernard Little, who has been working hard in Broomhill, comments:

“We have previously come second many times in Broomhill. Students are understandably disillusioned by the Lib Dems broken pledge on tuition fees. We expect many of them to vote Green this time, so this could be a breakthrough year for us.”
