Worcester Green Party members have selected Cllr Louis Stephen to represent them in the Worcester constituency at the next General Election.
Louis’ key message: “Westminster MP’s are in chaos – hopelessly divided and putting the interests of their own parties ahead of the national interest. If elected I would be another Green voice at the heart of Westminster to back up the fantastic work already being done by Caroline Lucas MP.”
Louis’ priorities are climate change, poverty elimination, giving the people the final say on Europe, proper funding of schools and hospitals as well as changing the political culture by introducing a fairer more proportional voting system for all levels of government.
Louis moved to Worcester with his wife and children over 20 years ago and previously worked at Worcester Bosch as a senior engineering manager. Louis now works full time as a city councillor for Battenhall ward and currently chairs the influential cross-party Policy and Resources committee at Worcester City Council.
Louis said, “The Green Party is firmly established as Worcester’s third party and the only party to be able to challenge both Labour and the Conservatives on the city council. We now have three Green city councillors and one county councillor. We hold the balance of power on Worcester City council and work cooperatively and responsibly with all the political groups to help run the council in the best interests of local city residents.”
We do not receive funds from big business or the unions. We are currently raising money for the £500 needed to stand a candidate in each of the six constituencies across Worcestershire - £3,000 in total. Can you afford to chip-in £5, £10 or £20 to enable everyone to vote Green if they want to? https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/general-election-2019---deposits/
Green Party Meetings
All Green Party members are welcome to come along to our monthly meeting to discuss our plans for Worcester and Worcestershire.
Our next meeting starts at 7:30pm on Wednesday 19th May. Our monthly business meetings will now be online via Zoom. Please contact Nick Weeks by email if you would like to attend. If you need any help setting up Zoom, please get in touch.
Worcester City Museum has no public cycle parking. The City Museum is situated on a cycle lane. Cycle parking would mean that City Museum visitors can make sustainable transport choices and help ease the City's traffic congestion.
