Kirklees Green Party Leader Councillor Andrew Cooper has been selected as his Party’s Parliamentary Candidate for the Huddersfield Constituency in the forthcoming General Election.
Andrew was first elected to the Newsome Ward in 1999 and has been re-elected five times beating all the major parties. He is the Green Party National Energy Spokesperson. He stood at the last General Election, polling the highest ever Green parliamentary vote in the constituency and now posing a growing challenge to the old parties in Huddersfield.
He says that key themes for the Huddersfield election will be keeping the NHS public and in particuar continuing his support for the Hands Off Huddersfield Royal Infirmary campaign; working for better housing; promoting young people's issues; working for a sensible Brexit and protecting the environment from climate change.
To get these messages out as effectively as possible, Andrew and the Greens need YOUR help. Unlike the Labour and Tory parties, we don't receive funding or resources from big backers. We depend instead on our members and supporters, on citizens like you.
