Calder Valley Election 2010
|KATE SWEENY, Green Party Candidate - 7th April|
Kate Sweeny is the Green Party candidate in the general election.
Kate grew up in East Yorkshire and has been an NHS Speech and Language Therapist for 27 years.
She has lived in the Calder Valley for 10 years.
The Green Party believes that many people want an alternative to the ‘usual suspects’ at this election, and that we’re well placed to provide it. Here’s why:
What was that other thing? Oh yes – the environment! Don’t be fooled by ‘greenwash’ - only the Greens are committed to 90% CO2 reductions by 2030. This is what we need in order to keep the effects of climate change within acceptable limits.
People say that a vote for us is “wasted” but this is nonsense. In Calderdale our active membership has trebled over the last 18 months, and the polls say there will be Green MPs in Parliament from now on. The only wasted vote is for something or someone you don’t believe in. Please consider voting Green if you want a real change!
