Thank you voters.

We, the four Green councillors, want to thank all the Star readers who supported the Green Party in the council elections.

Councillors Douglas Johnson and Rob Murphy

Councillors Douglas Johnson and Rob Murphy

You chose us in three close-run wards of City, Broomhill and Sharrow Vale and in Nether Edge and Sharrow.  Our colleagues in Crookes & Crosspool, Walkley, Manor Castle, Gleadless Valley, Ecclesall and Hillsborough were also given a lot of support.  Across the whole city, the Green’s vote share went up again to 13.7%.  Above all, we offered a chance for people to talk about better politics.

During the election campaign we met many interesting well-informed people who were keen to share their thoughts and ideas about how to make Sheffield an even better place to live. We are humbled by the response of people who voted for us and we will continue working for all the residents in the areas we represent.

There is One Response to Thank you voters.

A pressing issue is how can the council claim no cash for libraries when it has just trebled spending on the failed Sevenstone project? A proper public debate is needed in Sheffield and spending priorities changed to prioritize things we actually need like libraries and library staff. As a final thought much larger savings could and should be made from corporate pay, councilors expenses, ditching the nonsense Sevenstone project and coming up with a proper strategy to reuse buildings to create a vibrant city centre and restore library staff.
