Your 3 votes can elect 3 Green councillors in the new Nether Edge & Sharrow ward.

Your Green Party candidates Alison Teal, Steve Barnard and Rob Cole live locally. They’re working closely with residents, community groups and local Green councillors Sarah Jane Smalley and Rob Murphy to improve your area.

Alison supports efforts to improve local communities. “Helping people connect makes lives better.”

Steve campaigns for improved public services. “We must protect services that support local people.”

It’s Greens or Labour here

The Council elections in this ward will be a close contest between Greens and Labour.

In the May 2015 elections, Greens came a close second to Labour in the two wards that covered the new Nether Edge & Sharrow ward.

Green action

Green Councillors have worked to stop litter and fly-tipping and deal with anti-social behaviour. We have challenged the policy of selling public services without public scrutiny.

We opposed plans for a new elected mayor, rejected in a 2012 referendum.

In the council budget we proposed to:

  • Cut the price of residents’ parking permits
  • Cut executive pay in the Council
  • Invest £6.5 million in cutting fuel bills for homes and schools

We also found extra money to:

  • Cut air pollution from taxis
  • Improve road safety and public transport
  • Save vital care for the elderly and disabled All were rejected by the ruling Labour group.

All were rejected by the ruling Labour group.
