Press release:


Let's make Jubilee Ward safer and greener, says Green by-election candidate (1)

The area needs "more facilities for young people and a higher police presence".

Enfield Green Party has launched its Jubilee Ward by-election campaign today, pledging to deal with crime and rising energy costs.



Douglas Coker (2), Green Party candidate for Jubilee Ward, said: "Crime is a worry, so I'd like to see more facilities for young people and a higher police presence. We also need to work to help young people respect themselves and others more.

"I'm sure Jubilee residents will be concerned about rising gas and electricity bills and, of course, we all need to reduce our carbon emissions to help deal with climate change. The council should help co-ordinate and pay for insulating homes as an urgent measure.

"I'd also like to see the installation of solar panels and other devices to make more use of renewable energy. This is part of the Green Party's Green New Deal that will also create 'green collar' jobs."
