This is a call for candidates to stand for the Green Party at the 2022 elections to councils in Oxfordshire.
Following our successes in the big 2021 elections, we now have 3 Green councillors on Oxfordshire County Council, 12 district councillors and many parish and town councillors. They are getting things done, in administration in South Oxfordshire and Oxfordshire County and in opposition in Oxford, Cherwell, West Oxfordshire and the Vale, holding the big parties to account.
We need more Green councillors in Oxfordshire. Could you follow in the footsteps of our Green Party councillors, and stand for election? You could improve the quality of our councils by representing the people and views that the governing parties ignore.
In 2022 there are council elections in Oxford, Cherwell District (north Oxfordshire) and in West Oxfordshire. There are places where you might win as we came close in 2021 - and other areas where we need a candidate so that people can vote Green. And in 2023 there are elections across South Oxfordshire and the Vale.
If you are at all interested in standing as a candidate, or helping organise a campaign for a candidate, please complete the form below, and the Elections Committee will get back to you with more details.
If you want any more information on what is involved in standing as candidate, please contact the Elections Co-ordinator, David Newman.
We are looking for both target candidates, who will work hard to win in May 2021, and non-target candidates who need to do as little as getting on the ballot paper and our website so that people can vote everywhere for a Green Party candidate.
