A Green Mayor for London!

 

London has been through a lot in the last 12 months. From the pandemic to Brexit. We need a new plan. A fresh start for London.

The election for Mayor is one of the most high profile elections this year. It's our collective opportunity to demand action on the climate emergency. To elect new Green leadership.

Greens are already making a difference at City Hall. In the London Assembly I’ve been working hard to tackle a big rise in youth homelessness and to win backing for a universal basic income for Londoners, to provide a secure safety net.

Green ideas are winning and only a Green mayor will act with the urgency these extraordinary times demand. 

Your money will help us reach more Londoners than ever before

There’s three key ways your donations will be used for this campaign.

The money raised will pay for our presence in the election booklet delivered to every Londoner. We need £10,000 to help us reach over eight million Londoners.

We need to raise £5,000 to pay for leaflets delivered in a coronavirus-safe way. We’ve already delivered one million leaflets. We want to deliver one million more. That’s how we win over voters.

Finally, we’ll be using social media to engage as many voters as possible. Your donations mean we can compete with the other parties who are already paying for this kind of advertising. £5,000 will help us reach our target audiences.

These are the tactics we need to give our campaign wings. To build on the record level of support in the polls we are already achieving.

Elect Jarelle Francis

 

Hello - I’m Jarelle Francis and I am running to be your representative for Enfield and Haringey on the London Assembly

Elections for the London Assembly are different to typical elections. They’re fair elections - elected by Proportional Representation

If you use your votes for the Green Party you will get Green representation.

Greens have a great record of delivering on the London Assembly. From getting the Mayor to declare a Climate Emergency to winning £45 million worth of funding for youth clubs. 

Sian and Caroline get stuff done - and we can get more Greens in the Assembly!

We just need your support and hopefully your donations. Because we’re committed to using our platform in the Assembly to demand real change.

We’ll fight for action on the climate emergency so we can create the greenest city in the world.

We have a clear plan to keep London moving. We’ll move past polluting cars and invest in the future of travel - public transport, walking and cycling.

And we’ll bring fresh thinking to housing. So no one is struggling to put a roof over their head.

Every donation to this Crowdfunder is about reaching voters locally. In Enfield and Haringey we need to reach and win over as many residents as possible. Your donation will help us reach Londoners on social media, via the post and over the phone. 

We can’t rely on billionaires and corporate donors like the other parties. We are a grassroots movement. And your donations can help get our message through and win the support we need. 

Thank you so much.

After graduating from Oxford with a BA in Maths I got in on the ground floor of commercial computing and had a successful career as a freelance analyst/programmer, though I have been retired for several years now. I have lived in Palmers Green for over 40 years.

I have been a member of the Green Party for more than 30 years, and an active one for almost 20. Currently I am both Treasurer and Election Agent. I also hold active roles in Enfield & The Barnets United Nations Association, the Enfield Fairtrade Campaign (which I chaired when we achieved Fairtrade Borough status for Enfield in 2008, and do again) and Enfield Palestine Solidarity. I support various other social and environmental justice causes.

I also play both chess and bridge seriously – though currently online only.

Luke Balnave

I work as a data manager at a local secondary school and grew up in Enfield. I like to keep active and play tennis at a local club and football for a local vets team on Enfield Playing Fields. I have two daughters and want to help create a bright future for them. Two-party politics no longer works for Enfield. It is time for a new breed of plural engagement where voices are heard.

I am standing as I want to deliver a sustainable and prosperous future for Enfield and its next generation. I intend to be a robust independent force for scrutiny and accountability that rebuilds faith in local governance. I want to see Enfield re-emerge as a place where the community and council work hand-in-hand to deliver on those things that will most enhance the lives of its residents.

I will be relentless in facilitating a fresh start for the local economy, where sustainable local businesses are prioritised and where green industries are allowed to thrive and create the next generation of employment opportunities for our young people.

I am committed to ensuring our amazing green spaces, that have proved their worth ten-fold in recent times, are fully protected and remain under full council control. A commercial entity has no place in the wider day-to-day usage of such critical sources of community wellbeing. I personally volunteer at Bush Hill Park and I know the difference a truly community-centric, well-run park can make to people’s daily lives.

I stand resolutely behind existing local residents who feel rightly threatened by crudely conceived skyscrapers being proposed on their doorstep. These need to work for existing residents first.

I will ensure that pollution and health issues are placed as the top priority where health equity is critical in delivering just outcomes for all Enfield residents. We will clean up our most polluted areas to create a safeguarded environment for future generations. I will proactively support measures that empower local action on climate change and enable Enfield to act now for our younger residents.

Enfield is rich in diversity and the community bonds that are built here. It has so many positive aspects that make Enfield a great place to live and work. I will ensure these traditions are built on to revive stewardship towards a bright future for our borough. We have a critical opportunity now to secure a sustainable footing in how we rebuild our local economy and how local government and residents can more effectively work together. Let’s not waste this chance.

Want Green. Vote Green.
