This is your chance to make a difference by backing the only Party to make a stand and present a real alternative.
Five Reasons to vote for Liz Taylor, your Green Party candidate.
1. The Best Candidate
The Green have a superb candidate with Liz Taylor, somebody with a real record of voluntary service to our local community. You can trust Liz to do a good job.
2. Defending Local Democracy
It’s the Greens who have led the fight for local democracy by moving the resolutions to restore our Area Committee after Labour abolished it in a central power grab. We want back the planning controls and our devolved budget to improve our area.
3. Fighting for the NHS
It’s the Greens who have led the fight against the privatisation of the Health Service and the cuts. They are the only national party with representation at all levels to demand that the NHS is publicly owned and publicly run.
4. Action not Promises
It’s the Greens who have supported local campaigns. It was local Risinghurst resident and Green councillor David Williams who at the last Country Council recommended lights at the A40 Collingwood Road junction and formally questioned the Tories about the appalling state of London Road. It’s the Greens who want a full service timetable for the No 9 bus and have formally asked the Council to consider purchasing Stansfeld Centre.
5. Defending Public Services.
Only the Greens have put forward a real anti cuts budget to defend public services. At the County the Greens formulated a budget to protect the elderly, the poor and the sick from cuts and on the City it’s the Greens who have spoken out about the lunacy of replacing the existing Blackbird Leys swimming pool at a cost of £9.2million in a time of austerity and closing the much loved Temple Cowley Pool.
I think Liz Taylor will make a good councillor for Quarry and Risinghurst.
