Northants Green Party - Elections 2017
We did it
On 24th May 2017 we successfully raised £717 with 25 supporters in 28 days

A snap General Election has been called for Thursday 8th June. Please donate today so we can stand candidates across the County.

We now have the opportunity to stand up for genuine tolerance, a sustainable economy, and fairer society.

In 2015, we stood in all constituency seats across Northamptonshire for the first time.  We are hoping to stand in as many seats in the County again in 2017. However, even just to stand we need to raise £500 per seat for our deposit.

We currently have now announced the following candidates:

Corby - Steve Scrutton
Kettering - Rob Reeves
Daventry - Steve Whiffen
Northampton North - Steve Miller
Northampton South - Scott Mabbutt
South Northamptonshire - Denise Donaldson
Wellingborough - Jonathan Hornett

We don't have the financial backing like other parties and so, while we don't like asking for money, this is the way we are funded - by our supporters. In that respect, we value every penny pledged and so you can rest assured that your money will be put to good use.  Each candidate (or their local constituency group) is putting up half the funds for the deposit. Any funds raised beyond what we need for the deposits, will be used on promotional materials for our campaigns to get our message out.  If we retain any deposits (i.e. we receive 5% of the vote) we will split them proportionally across the county between those who pledged (please note, that in 2015 we were unsuccessful in receiving more than 5% in any constituency - but only by a few hundred votes in many).

The Northants Green Party isn't just about standing in elections - we continue to try and make a difference in our local area despite not having any councillors at Borough, County or Parliamentary level. We have launched a successful Clean-up Campaigns, provided donations to Food Banks, hold regular discussions and events and we are currently in the process of monitoring air pollution across the County.

Many thanks in advance,

Rob Reeves
