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.
