We need to raise £5,000 to pay the deposit required to stand a Green candidate in the election for North East Mayor (£2,500 raised already).

by Andrew Gray in Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear, United Kingdom

From Boldon to Berwick, Barnard Castle to Byker, the future demands a just transition to a green economy, to make our communities fairer, greener and more resilient.  The region needs a Green Mayor at the helm, to deliver the change we need.  You can’t rely on other candidates.  If you want a Green option, help us to get Andrew Gray onto the ballot paper for the Mayoral election, by contributing to our fund for the £5,000 deposit.  We're already half way there, so please help us to raise the remaining £2,500.

Big decisions are needed to transform the North East economy, and a Green Mayor will have the finances and power to deliver them.

  • Finance to ensure that every home can be warm, insulated and cheaper to heat
  • Public transport that is reliable, integrated, frequent and serves every community
  • Skills training and apprenticeships for the work needed to transform our economy - insulating homes, expanding renewable energy, manufacturing batteries, green construction
  • Support for every community to develop resilience and to prosper.

We have a manifesto for the North East. We have a Warmer Homes plan to massively improve our energy inefficient housing. We have a candidate, Andrew Gray. Please help us raise the deposit, so that we can get Andrew onto the ballot paper for the 2 million residents of the region. A Fairer, Greener North East is possible after May, but only if it’s on the ballot paper. Help us to get it there by contributing to this fund, and sharing with family and friends. £2,500 has been donated so far on another fundraiser site, so we just need the remaining £2,500 to get our Warmer Homes plan and vision for a Fairer, Greener North East onto the ballot paper.

Andrew Gray was born in Newcastle, brought up in Northumberland, lives in Newcastle and has worked in Durham since the 1990s.

If our £5k target is not reached, or if a General Election is called for May, we will use money raised for General Election deposits instead, so that as many people as possible can vote for a Green MP in our region. 

P.S. Because we're a political party, we're required to run electoral register checks from people making donations above £500, and if you donate over £1,500 during a year, we are required to let the Electoral Commission know, who will make this available on their website. All donations go to general campaigning funds.
