My name is John Coughlin and I am standing as the Green Party candidate for Lewisham Deptford.
In 2014, I was elected as the only opposition councillor on Lewisham Council, representing the Green Party. I am a freelance translator, a member of Brockley Tenants' Cooperative and a musician.
There is only one reason to get involved in politics and that is to improve the lives of the people you represent. This election is a chance for everyone who believes that the system of two-party politics has been a failure to vote for change.
It costs £500 to field one candidate. Support democracy by helping us provide people in Lewisham Deptford the option to vote for a Green voice.
We are extremely proud to be able to offer people the chance to vote for us but, as a grassroots party, we can't rely on non-doms and big business donations to clear the path to democracy for us.
This money will go towards fielding candidates and if we can raise more it will be spent on spreading the word about the Green message through leafleting, canvassing and events.
We have an offer of match-funding between now and the general election, so whatever you donate will be matched by a generous donor, so please don't delay!
Our members have already been working extremely hard to pick up the bulk of our costs but we do need that final push from all those supporters and activists out there who believe in equality not poverty, public services in public hands and power to communities.
By making a donation you confirm that you are eligible to make political donations in the UK, and that this donation is not made for or on behalf of any other person. All donations received are subject to the regulations of the Political Parties, Elections and Referendums Act 2000.
