Thame Town Cllr Sonja Francis

I support the Green Party because I believe in campaigning and action against the effects of Climate Change and its influence on the sustainability of species and the lives of us all.

    £1,317.00 raised
    GOAL: £5,300.00

    In 2019 we elected 7 district councillors outside Oxford, thanks to your support. We now have Green councillors working for you in Cherwell, Oxford, South Oxfordshire and the Vale of White Horse as well as in many parish and town councils. Now we need to start campaigning to win more in the elections postponed to May 2021. On top of the Oxfordshire County Council elections, there will be elections in West Oxfordshire and Cherwell District. In Oxford City, people will be electing two councillors in each ward on new boundaries. That means our candidates stand a good chance of winning in many more places in Oxford.

    To do that we need to campaign all year round. We need to print, design and deliver over a dozen ward newsletters and leaflets in all the wards where we could win. That cost money. To fund such a big campaign, we need to raise £5,300.

    Please give whatever you can afford:

    • £5 can pay for a canvassing pack to equip a volunteer.
    • £15 will print 500 posters for a town.
    • £25 pays for a Facebook advertisement.
    • £40 pays for mobile phone canvassing for a month.
    • £100 pays for 5000 leaflets to get Green supporters to vote.
    • £250 will pay for an advertisement in all the free newspapers in Oxfordshire.
    • £600 pays for one months work by our staff.

    Donate to our fighting fund now. Give a little, or give a lot, whatever you can afford. Thank you.

    Help us to create a Greener Oxfordshire!

    We need to build Oxfordshire back better

    Not only is there is a climate emergency, we have many more people in Oxfordshire struggling to make ends meet and using food banks.

    We need to get Green councillors elected to voice the concerns of the vulnerable and insecure in our midst, and to take the urgent steps needed to build a sustainable recovery that would see Oxfordshire carbon neutral by 2030.

    We are up against well-funded party machines, but the Green Party knows that building grass root support can help us to win.  In 2019 Oxfordshire elected 8 new Green councillors. The green party now jointly control one council.

    Whatever your skills, there is something you can do to help get Green Councillors elected. Fill in the form below, and one of our volunteers will get in touch to talk about how you would like to become involved.

    THANK YOU!

    Ever thought of standing for election?

    This is a call for candidates to stand for the Green Party at the 2021 elections to councils in Oxfordshire.

    We need more Green councillors in Oxfordshire. Could you follow in the footsteps of our Green Party councillors in Oxford, and stand for election? You could improve the quality of our councils by representing the people and views that the governing parties ignore.

    Act now

    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 their name on the ballot paper so that people can vote everywhere for a Green Party candidate.
