Thank you to Martin Paley and Jan Maskell who have been selected to stand as Green target candidates in the winnable by-election on 17 May in University & Scotforth Rural Ward. Thanks also to Cait Sinclair who will be our candidate in Skerton West - where we have less chance of winning, but hope to get a good result which we can build on in 2019.
Martin is in the final year of an Environmental Science degree at Lancaster University, and is involved in lots of sustainability projects both on and off campus. Jan is a behavioural psychologist, who teaches part-time in the Faculty of Health & Medicine. Both of them would make excellent Green Councillors! We will be putting lots of effort into this by-election having got Greens elected in this ward previously, and there are some big issues affecting this ward (e.g. Bailrigg Garden Village) where the Green Party is the only party standing up for local residents.
