FOCUSING ON WHAT REALLY MATTERS
This election is not just about Brexit and getting it done. Whether we remain or leave the EU, the most important issue facing us all is climate change, which threatens our future existence on Earth. We’ve been saying that for nearly 40 years now.
But finally, in the light of devastating storms, floods, droughts, forest fires, melting icecaps, rising water, dying seas, species extinction and mass migration, the penny has dropped, and most political parties have accepted the threat and are offering serious policies to tackle climate change.
But no-one’s climate policies come close to those of the Green Party, and even the £1 billion/year measures we are proposing will barely be sufficient to meet the 2030 target to prevent a 1.5 to 2% warming of the planet.
We are the only party you can trust to tackle the climate emergency properly. Other parties continue to adopt our policies but water them down or even renege on them once an election has occurred.
The more Green votes cast, the more power and influence the Green Party gains to pressure the next government to implement real Green policies required to avoid irreversible runaway climate chaos.
We know the chance of our candidate Cllr Sharon Galliford being elected to replace Michael Gove is remote (although in these strange unpredictable times anything is possible!).
But no Green vote is wasted. Please donate whatever you can to help fund our campaign to attract as many Green votes as possible.
THE SUCCESS THIS YEAR’S LOCAL AND EU ELECTIONS
In the local elections in May this year two Greens were elected to Surrey Heath Borough Council and 3 more to Windlesham Parish Council - the first time ever in Surrey Heath. Our candidate, Sharon Galliford was elected to both the borough and parish councils SHBC and WPC and in the first few months in office she has already achieved a great deal, including getting a Climate Emergency motion passed committing the council to carbon neutrality by 2030. Sharon was already a well-known and respected community campaigner.
In the European Elections we increased our number of MEPs from 3 to 7, and beat the Conservatives!
WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP
Following these elections we are very short of funds. The Green Party doesn’t have the backing of big business, Trade Unions, or the super-rich. We depend on the generosity of our members and supporters.
Hitting our target of £500 will allow us to fund printing of leaflets, run an effective social media campaign and reach more voters than ever before in Surrey Heath.
We will highlight Sharon’s track record, showcase her work as a local Borough and Parish Councillor and point out that unlike the Tory, Labour and UKIP candidates, Sharon actually lives in Surrey Heath with a track record of dedication and service to the local community.
Please donate to the campaign help us attract as many Green votes as possible.
OTHER WAYS YOU CAN HELP
If you feel you are not able to contribute financially, you can still help by telling your friends or sharing this page on social media.
You can also help in the campaign by displaying a poster or delivering leaflets. Please email: email@example.com
Finally, of course, don’t forget that your vote counts too on polling day
Many thanks for your help.
All the best,
Cllr Peter Barnett
Blackwater Valley Green Party
