The extremely popular local leader of the local Green group, Councillor JIllian Creasy, is going all-out to win Sheffield Central and is now the main challenger to Labour. The Green Party polled well over 30% in the most recent Council elections and is sure to build on that support come the General Election.

“Our record breaking number of candidates for the City Council and General Election reflects the recent growth of the Green Party,” said Jillian Creasy.

“Our membership has quadrupled and we are doing better than ever in the polls. There is a real sense that the electorate want an alternative to the traditional parties who are all offering more austerity.”

“It is fantastic that more voters than ever will have the chance to make “Two Votes Green” on 7th May to join the movement for a fairer society organised for the common good, not just the wealthy few.”
