Larry Sanders was the Green Party candidate for the Witney constituency by-election on 20 October 2016. He came fourth, beating UKIP into fifth place.

We live in the most unequal society in Europe. After by more than 40 years of government by the by the Establishment parties, the rich are richer while times remain tough for the rest of us. The gap between the rich and the rest has widened in health, education, housing, pensions and even years of life.

Larry has lived in Oxfordshire since 1969. He is the Green Party Spokesperson on health and social care and was leader of the Oxfordshire County Council Green Group. He has been working for people with disabilities and their carers for the past 20 years. He fought to save Witney Community Hospital in the 1990s, and is fighting to save it again, along with the community hospital in Chipping Norton.

Born in New York in 1935, Larry studied economics at CUNY, social work at Oxford and holds a law doctorate from Harvard. Larry has been active in the presidential campaign of his brother, Bernie Sanders, and stands on a similar platform. See Bernie's endorsement below, then endorse Larry yourself.

    I supported Bernie 24/7 and still do. Larry inspired Bernie to be who he is, so that makes Larry #1 in my book.

    To be completely honest, I did hear about Larry Sanders through his influential brother, but that doesn’t mean I respect Mr. Sanders any less, he is fighting for a better future for all and I believe in him strongly.

    It is time to stop deluding yourselves and accept that there is an ever decreasing chance that your own children will have less opportunity, less wealth, less public services, less available jobs, poorer quality housing, less freedoms and less security if we continue with the financial industry controlled governments of the Tory or Labour Party.

    If you want any sort of future at all now is the time to put aside your prejudices and your learned voting behaviours, and to think for yourself, read for yourself and make your own decision. I believe that if everybody did this honestly and without bias we would be looking at a Green government in 2020. That is why I am endorsing Larry Sanders for Whitney.

    I’m endorsing Larry as a hardworking and committed local campaigner in Oxfordshire for many years. He champions the NHS which is now faced with a huge funding shortfall, as well as a concerted policy from the Conservatives to degrade and privatise it. If we want to maintain NHS services in Oxfordshire and across the country, Witney needs and MP like Larry in Westminster.
