Lucy, who is involved with several local community and environmental projects, works locally in publishing. She has lived in Bedford for 14 years, and is married with two teenagers.
"The Green Party is deeply commited to social justice, restoring public services, and tackling climate change. I joined the Green Party because it has the long term needs of People and the Planet at it's heart. I've always believed that the two cannot be separated!" Says Lucy.
Lucy has stood three times as Council candidate in Castle Ward. She looks forward to promoting Green Policies in Bedford. "Current Events nationally and globally have shocked people and persuaded some to get active, especially young people. Now is the time to show a better way to deal with the problems we face. I'm passionate about getting people involved with big issues like growing poverty and climate change. There's so much at stake now!"
Lucy explains: "Greens are out campaigning in Bedford all year round on local and national issues: proper funding of social care; challenging threats to the status of Bedford Hospital; opposing renewal of Trident nuclear weapons; and highlighting government inaction on illegally high levels of air pollution."
"in 2015" she says, "millions didn't vote because they thought that it wouldn't make a difference. My message is 'Register and vote', because you need to have a say in both your future and the future of generations to come."
Unlike other political parties, the Green Party do not receive any donations from big business or Unions. ALL of our funding comes from members or small private donations. It costs at least £1,200 to run a proper general election campaign, and we desperately need your help to ensure that the Green voice is heard in Bedford and Kempston. Please donate so that Lucy can stand, no matter how small the amount.
Money raised will support Lucy and other Green Party Candidates in Bedfordshire
