We apologise if there is not a Green Party candidate standing in your ward this year. Our new local branch has only been up and running for 15 months, and we are now standing seven candidates – more candidates than ever before, which isn’t bad for our first local elections! Click here to read all about them.
There was an active Green Party here 10-20 years ago and two Green Party district councillors (Alan Tootill and Phil Foggett) and a few committed local members have managed to stand at most elections over the past few years. Since setting up in January 2010, we have managed to stand two General Election candidates in 2010 (details here) and we now have our first two parish councillors, Emily McIvor in Axmouth and myself in Honiton.
We are attracting new members every week and hope to stand many more candidates at the next district elections in four years and Devon County Council elections in two years time. If you are interested in becoming a member, please click here and please think about standing for election yourself.
