Al Wilson, Green Party candidate in St Margaret's


I grew up in North Oxford and went to two schools in St. Margaret’s ward, so I know the area well and understand the issues facing the community. I’m a Senior Lecturer in Philosophy, used to arguing on my feet and thinking critically; I want to use my skills and energy to improve council decision-making and reduce inequality across the city.

What will you do if you are elected?

If elected, I’ll press for implementation of new ideas to address the housing crisis, including next-generation rent controls and use of space above car parks for sustainable and affordable housing. I’ll also lobby the council to do more to address air pollution, a significant risk to health locally.

    Hi Craig – probably I have the most personal connections in North Ward, having grown up there – also St Margaret’s to a slightly lesser degree. Given the transient student population of Holywell, probably fewer connections there – though I am known by a couple of dozen philosophy graduate students and fellows at colleges in the ward.

    Al, thank you for putting yourself forward as a candidate.

    In which ward do you feel you have the best connections?
