On 19 September 2013 there is an Oxford City Council by-election in North ward, where the Green Party came second to Labour in 2012 with more votes than the coalition Lib. Dems. The Green Party is fighting for a fairer Oxford. Let's make Oxford a green and friendly place to live.
Your candidate is Sushila Dhall, a well-known and respected community activist with 14 years experience as a former County and City Councillor. She founded the local campaign to save Port Meadow.
REINTRODUCE the Area Committees abolished by Labour giving North Oxford people real power with decision making on planning issues, a devolved budget and powers to make a difference.
REVERSE the centralisation of power into the hands of a select few Councillors and give all elected councillors, and the people they represent, real power on Committees.
REFORM planning policies to better protect our City’s historic and natural environment.
STOP City Council spending on multi-million pound vanity projects whilst making millions of pounds worth of cuts to front line services and staff redundant.
PROTECT the Covered Market by opposing Labour’s massive rent rises and stopping the introduction of chainstores.
TAKE ACTION on air pollution in Summertown and the City Centre. The City Council have just released yet another air quality strategy which in itself cannot deliver improvements.
Your pledge to Sushila
Vote Sushila Dhall in September. Pledge your vote now, and vote on 19 September. Your vote will not be wasted, Greens came second in 2012.
