I'm Ian Middleton and I'm your Green Party Candidate for the Kidlington South Division in the Oxfordshire County Council elections in May. I've served for the past 2 years as the first and only (so far) Green councillor on Cherwell District Council, working hard for the people in my ward and holding the ruling Conservative group to account at every opportunity. I also sit on Kidlington, Yarnton and Gosford & Water Eaton Parish Councils.
Our area needs a strong voice at county council level and I believe I can provide that. I've already engaged with the county as much as I can as a District Councillor, but I only have so much influence without being a member of that council. I need your help to be able to more fully represent the people of Kidlington at county level, ensuring our roads are properly maintained and that we get the sort of local infrastructure we need, especially if the District Council's plans to build 4400 houses in our community come the fruition.
Now, more than ever, the Green message needs to get out there and people need the opportunity to vote Green in support of our actions against climate change as well as our focus social justice and strong and active local representation.
We believe that the climate emergency can only be fought alongside an agenda that ensures social equality and justice for all.
The Green Party doesn't accept donations from large corporate organisations and all our campaigns are grass roots based.
But fighting elections costs money. The difficult circumstances caused by the pandemic have placed additional pressures on us as a small party. To get our message to voters we may need to fund leaflet deliveries using commercial distribution companies. This is what the larger parties are doing and we need the resources to be able to keep up.
To send one leaflet to every household in the Kidlington South Division will cost £350, but we'd like to send more than one. We also need funds for a myriad of other things that are required to get our campaigning message out there.
I hope you'll choose to support me, both in spirit and in person, but it's also vital that we have enough funds to make our presence felt throughout a campaign that could be one of the most important elections for our communities.
Please give what you can, and if possible join us to help make sure the future of Kidlington and the planet is a secure Green and pleasant land for everyone.
