Thank you for taking the time to visit our crowdfunder and watch this video.
We know from Dave Wells' election to Amber Valley Borough Council, by people in Duffield, that lots of people in this area are looking for a change from ‘business as usual’ in politics.
We are offering you a chance to help to try to elect a Green MP in our area.
We’re talking about helping the Greens to stand candidates in the Mid Derbyshire and Amber Valley constituencies.
Calling general elections at short notice, and currently every other year, creates a challenge for parties that don’t have corporate backers or rich members.
The Green Party doesn’t receive the same kind of funding as other political parties, and snap general elections could almost be designed to exclude us from the democratic process – so we need your help.
The Green Party relies on donations from our members, and from people like you, to ensure that the democratic process works for everybody.
The deposit for standing a candidate for a general election is £500. £2000 would give us the money to pay deposits and do some campaigning in our area.
If we exceed our target, and/or if we have our election deposits returned, we will use the money to carry on working towards getting Greens elected at all levels of government.
We really hope you will help us, and spread the word of this crowdfunder appeal to your family and friends.
Thank you in advance for your personal support for the Greens and the democratic process.
