We, the four Green councillors, want to thank all the Star readers who supported the Green Party in the council elections.
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.
Councillors Rob Murphy, Alison Teal, Magid Mah and Douglas Johnson
