….I’ve just been selected as the prospective parliamentary candidate for the Green Party for East Devon? How do I feel? A mixture of things really – I’m proud of myself for getting off my bum last autumn, joining the Green Party and saying I was going to do something in this area….then doing it by setting up the new East Devon Green Party with a few other lovely like minded souls. Then when I heard there wasn’t anyone wanting to stand for the General Election, I said, go on then put me forward and we’ll see what happens! Then I got selected….
I’m excited, nervous, anxious, afraid I’ll say something stupid and afraid people will think I’m incredibly ignorant but……I’m also ready for a challenge, ready to argue why the Greens can do it better. Ready for heated debates, ready to help, ready to try and ready to learn. (Add your tips and advice below)
We’re having a little party this evening to celebrate but we are also looking for a suitable ‘green’ venue in East Devon to have our launch party in a few weeks. Anyone know of anywhere – Ottery, Exmouth, Sidmouth way?
You can read more about me here by the way – and that’s me below with my Gordon Setter Chilli on the beach at Lyme Regis on New Years Day – the start of a great 2010.
