A Green MP for Somerton & Frome

by somandfromegp in Frome

We did it
On 16th December 2014 we successfully raised £3,082 with 158 supporters in 28 days

We're raising funds to get a Green MP elected. Theo Simon is a superb candidate but we have to cover the costs of the deposit and campaign.

All the very, very best to you Theo. I had the good fortune to protest at Faslane 365 with you and Shannon, and I was thrilled when I heard you were standing for the Greens. You would be a brilliant MP with all the passion, humour, directness and integrity you bring to your music and the rest of your life. I'm in Essex now going for Green there so sadly I can't vote for you. So here's to the good people of Somerset taking the opportunity you've given them. And yea, don't forget the fantastic music! :-)

This isn't my constituency, but it's just down the road and Frome is definitely the sort of place that would suit a Green MP. £10 pledged.

You're an inspiration! Well done for having the courage to stand up and represent what so many people feel! I'll be spreading the word and getting as many people to pledge as possible!

The planet and people need true and honest leadership with the environment at its heart if we are to have a future worth living for. Currently we don't and we are at risk of destroying the balance of nature which sustains us and all living things. We need Green leadership now before its too late! Good Luck Theo I am with you and thank you for standing up as our Green Party Candidate for the benefit of our planet, our environment and all that sustains us and the beauty of life on this awesome spinning rock! :) x

Theo, when the first child I gave birth to used to swing for hours singing 'with my hammer' at the top of her voice aged 6 I knew you and your family and friends were special. You have the moral strength and principles to move politics in the right direction, and even though we're no where near From I had to support you. Only sorry its not more, just started midwifery training, and money is crazy tight. Hope to meet and thank you for all that you do one day. X

Hi Theo, just pledged some funds. Remember you from the Devonport Labour party days in '83, you never did persuade us to join the YS! :-) You're still committed and passionate about change as ever. Good on you mate, so hope you win.....Nick and Christine Colbourne

Go for it, Theo. Your county, country, continent, planet, air, oceans, lakes, rivers, mountains, valleys, moorland, wetlands, beaches, trees, flowers, fruits, animals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, insects and yes, even the microbes NEED YOU! You, unstoppable, incredible, wonderful, serious and entertaining human being, you.

Theo, you seem like a compassionate and honest person, the kind that's rare in politics - they need more like you! I don't live in the area but I used to and I'm a Green Party member... I really hope you win, Somerton and Frome deserve to have a positive change from business as usual. Good luck!

Hi Theo, I've watched your videos and I'm really impressed with your passion, honesty and no bullshit approach. It's so refreshing. I'm very excited at the prospect of actually being able to vote the way I really want to. For so long it's just been a compromise, and I feel now that the Greens are a party who's time has finally come! I wish you the very best in your campaign, and may you succeed mightily! If anyone can do it, it's you! Go for it Theo! Much love and good wishes, Ruth xxx
