Help us hold your local Council to account
Oxfordshire Green Party is running campaigns to fight homelessness, save local community facilities, tackle air pollution, ban single-use plastics and generally improve the quality of your local council services by getting more Green councillors elected. Our Green councillors have already got local councils to divest from fossil fuels, improve cycling facilities and require 50% social housing in new developments.
We don't have much money, but we do have thousands of members and supporters in Oxfordshire. Will you join us to help make a difference in your local area? Please sign up below to volunteer in any way you can.
We are campaigning all year round on local issues and to get more Green councillors elected. If you have just a few hours to spare please do phone Kate Robinson on 07582 903996 to find how you can help, at a time that suits you.
Sushila Dhall, candidate for North ward
My name is Sushila Dhall, and I have been an active Green Party member and a community campaigner for over 20 years. During this time I have been elected to both local Councils, and have served 9 years on Oxfordshire County Council and 5 years on Oxford City Council.
My areas of special interest are transport and planning, and social welfare. I believe in grass-roots democracy and equality of access. Current campaigns include working to narrow the roadway on St Giles, to create Oxford's most beautiful public square, and the Campaign to Save Port Meadow seeking to lower the heights of the Roger Dudman way buildings to restore views of the Dreaming Spires and St Barnabas Tower.
I am a quick thinker, a hard worker, and passionately committed to a greener Oxford.
A graduate of St Hilda's College, Oxford, who has lived in central Oxford for nearly 30 years, Sushila works as a manager and a psychotherapist at an Oxford-based charity. She is a mother with a daughter who attends Cherwell School. Sushila is chair of Oxfordshire Green Party and the candidate for Oxford's North ward, and a keen cyclist and walker. Her interests are listening to and making music, reading and writing, and gardening. She also likes building fires and staring out to sea.
Here she is speaking at the launch of the Green Party campaign for the Oxford City Council elections on 3 May 2012.
