North Lancs Green Party is currently recruiting target candidates for the 2023 local elections in the Lancaster District, when every seat will be up for election (for a 4-year term, to 2027). We have ambitions to become the biggest group on Lancaster City Council, building on the successes of this year's local elections, and targetting to win more wards than ever before. As the biggest group we would be able to get even more of our Green policies and ideas implemented, to tackle the climate emergency and the deepening poverty crisis.
Please get in touch if you are potentially interested getting elected, have time to put into campaigning over the next year, and would like to know more about what's involved.
If you don't want to be a councillor but want to help others to get elected, we need you too! Strong teams in every target ward will be essential to support our candidates with tasks such as leaflet design (preferably using Canva), electoral data management (preferably using Excel), coordinating volunteers, leafletting and door-knocking. Training will be provided. We'll also consult with Green Party members over the coming months about updating our local manifesto - ideas and help with putting that together will be welcome too.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and an invitation to a meeting for potential candidates and campaign coordinators.
We are also hoping to recruit a paid (part-time) overall election coordinator - see here for info. We have secured a grant from the regional Green Party to help towards their salary, but we also need to increase our regular income from donations.
See how to make a donation to NLGP - your contribution could make all the difference to big Green wins next year!
