In the last local elections, Barnsley Green Party made a great showing in several wards, but especially in Penistone East — and without even campaigning!
This year, we’ve got a real opportunity to take a Tory ward and put a green on Barnsley’s council to represent the good people of Penistone East. Contribute what you can to help elect Dale Turner as Barnsley’s first ever green councillor!
A message from our candidate for Penistone East, Dale Turner:
I am standing as the Green Party candidate in Penistone East Ward in the Barnsley local elections on 5th May 2016.
We have been canvassing hard recently in the area and spending what little funds we have on producing excellent literature to help get our message across to the electorate. Unlike the major political parties we are up against, we don't have large financial backers and other funds to call on.
This is where you may be able to help. As a Green Party member or supporter, you can make a donation to help us fund our campaign this time and also give us a kick-start towards future elections and the production of a quarterly newsletter.
So why not help us build on the Green Surge and achieve our goal of electing Barnsley's first Green councillor.
However much you can give would be very much appreciated by myself and everyone on our team who is working so hard to achieve our goal.
So if you can, get involved and let’s bring about the change to local politics that Barnsley really needs.
Please give what you can spare and help elect me to represent the good people of Penistone East on 5th May 2016.
