Putting residents before party - The Worcester Observer

Putting residents before party

Worcester Editorial 26th Apr, 2019   0

GREEN Party co-leader Sian Berry was on hand to lend her support to local party activists ahead of the local elections.

The Green Party are fielding candidates in all 11 wards involved in this year’s Worcester City Council elections and have targeted success in St Stephen where they already have a city councillor in Neil Laurenson and county councillor Matthew Jenkins.

Ms Berry heard of a number of local concerns including the possible new home of Worcester City being built on Perdiswell Park, the lack of safe crossings on the busy Bilford Road, as well as the now much-reduced bus services covering the area.

Speaking near the shop on the busy Bilford Road, she said: “I’ve seen first-hand the difficult crossing by the shop on Bilford Road and I know that our elected Green councillors will not rest until we get a better crossing.

“It’s quite simple, if you want a councillor who will stand up for residents’ interests rather than toeing the party line, please support Marjory Bisset.”

Green group leader Coun Louis Stephen welcomed the full slate of candidates for this year’s poll and said the list enabled voters across Worcester to vote Green if they wanted to.
