Lois Muddiman, Green Party candidate for Jericho and Osney

LoisMuddimanatHogacre_web.jpgI’ve lived in West Oxford for 25 years and am passionate about building stronger communities and tackling climate change. Here are some of the things I’ve been involved with locally

  • Set up Hogacre Common in 2010, leasing the land from Corpus Christi College for a jar of honey/annum.
  • Founding member of West Oxford Panto Assoc. in 2010.  Made scenery, props, directed.

10 things I will do when you elect me:

  1. Fight to improve Air Quality in Jericho/West Oxford
  2. Fight to improve safety for cyclists and pedestrians

    Hi Lois! Hope you are all well. I was wondering whether the Green Party and you are putting pressure on the City Council to revise their traffic plans for Oxford on the back of the current Covid situation? It seems a golden opportunity to push hard for changes including reduced private car access to the city center, increased provision of public transport from Park & rides and improved/expanded cycle and pedestrian provision. There are daily Guardian articles – today the 11000 fewer EU deaths in a month due to lower pollution, what Milan is planning on the back of the drop in traffic etc. If there is any action/pressure on the feeble efforts of our City Council, I an many others will add our names.

    Why should any person with any health problem decide to vote tory to allow hunt to continue to

    destroy the health service?
