To get Brent Poland on the ballot and give him a fighting chance in the general election for the Green Party in Erewash

Message from Brent: We need hope for the future


I'm Brent, and I'm standing in the upcoming elections because I believe in hope for the future. I believe that the Green Party can fix a political system that doesn't represent the people. 


I have been an educator and resident of Erewash for over 20 years and was attracted to Green politics when two issues impacted our area in HS2 and Fracking. I got an insight into local and national political establishment and how it was failing in their duty to represent the ordinary people of the area. Through community campaigning we succeeded in stopping both projects ad holding the relevant agencies to account.

The Greens build policies on evidence, not on empty promises, and driven by the members from the bottom up as democracy should be, not by self-serving agendas from the top down. We are a very independent minded party and our MPs and councillors have the freedom to do what they feel is right for the people of the area. I will put the people of Erewash first, can the other parties say this? 

Being Green is not the easy political option. It's about standing up for social justice and our planet, even when faced with cynicism and entrenched interests. Unlike other parties, we're not beholden to big business or lobbyists. Our strength comes from everyday people like you. 

Your contributions enable us to fight for a future that prioritises people and the planet, not corporate profits. We have already proved that we are a rising force in local politics by taking our first seat in the last borough elections. A seat in the bastion of Conservative politics in the borough in Breaston and that is just the start. 

Together, we can continue to break the mould. We can create a political system that works for everyone, not just the privileged few. We can build a greener, fairer future for generations to come.

But we can't do it without you. Every donation, big or small, brings us closer to that goal. Contribute today and be a part of the change. 

Please note: Any funds raised in addition to the cost of the General Election deposit will be used to promote the Green Party and its' candidates across Erewash.
