Rob Murphy has been part of the Green councillor team in Central Ward for 8 years. “I am committed to making Sheffield a better place to live, work and visit. Our policies on transport, health and housing can do that.”

Declan Walsh has worked in the NHS, volunteered with charities and is involved in local cooperatives. “I want to support voluntary, cooperative and community groups. More Green Councillors will mean a more positive, accountable voice for Sheffield people.”

Douglas Johnson lives in Kelham Island and works as a legal caseworker for local solicitors. “I want to use my skills on the Council to improve people’s lives. Small practical changes can make a big difference.”

It’s Green or Labour here – Every Vote Counts

Last year the majority was just 44 votes in the old Central ward which included nearly all of the new City ward. More Green Councillors will make a big difference.

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.
