GREEN Party candidates for Cheshire East Council, if elected, promise to do our best to reduce pollution, save energy, and improve social justice. We will be listening to voters and representing their concerns.
Local councils’ spending power has been slashed by national government policies, and the Green Party thinks they should be better funded.
However, elected Green Party councillors up and down the country are contributing to local initiatives inspired by Green policies. Green councillors move council budgets toward a future that is fair on people, fair on the planet.
A brief policy round-up: We want Macclesfield to become an even better place to live.
We will work to preserve and enhance green spaces, and to remove and prevent litter and mess throughout the town.
We will encourage local schools to work together, and reduce pressure on pupils to jump through unnecessary hoops.
Green councillors will press for better services for older people and disadvantaged people.
We will press the council to keep public services within the council, and to pay council employees a living wage.
There are 30 Green Party candidates for Cheshire East Council. The more of us you elect, the more we can work together for change.
Please think seriously about voting Green – this election will challenge the old order propped up by the first-pastthe-post two-party system. Vote for the party you really support, and you will – at least – send the Green message to the people in power.
And at best, together YOU CAN get Green councillors elected.
