The Local Elections in May in Kirklees give the opportunity for Kirklees Greens to make significant progress. Andrew Cooper will be defending Newsome Ward and hoping to win a record 7th election. In other parts of Kirklees we will be looking to make a gain from the Conservatives in the Kirkburton Ward with Parish Councillor David Knight and from Labour in the Dalton Ward with another Green Parish Councillor, Clare Walters. We will again be standing Green Candidates in all 23 Kirklees seats giving everybody the opportunity to vote Green. We achieved 13% of the vote in Kirklees and we'll be working hard to get an even better result this time!
There is a real potential for a Hung Council following the election and Greens will be seeking to get commitment from Kirklees to back Passivhaus standards in their own projects, to pilot Green New Deal Demonstrator projects and to withdraw Council support for the expansion of Leeds Bradford Airport BUT we will need more Green Councillors elected to make this a reality.
3 target wards will really stretch us financially so we need your support to pay for the leaflets, target letters and the posters we need to get our message across.
With no elections in Kirklees for another 2 years we won't be doing another Crowdfunder for 2 years so please support this one if you can.
