Oswestry and Shropshire Councillor Mike Isherwood has been selected as the Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for the Green Party in North Shropshire.
Speaking afterwards Cllr Isherwood said that he is delighted to have been chosen by local party members for the role and is looking forward to campaigning with them whenever a general election is called.
“I’m delighted that local members have chosen me to stand in the next parliamentary election. I intend to build on my time as town and county councillor and campaign for a better deal for North Shropshire on the issues that people care most about, like protecting our beautiful environment, fixing our broken public transport system, making sure our economy benefits from the green jobs of the future, and saving our NHS. I want to get the message across that there is an alternative to the years of failure under the three tired old parties and their inability to tackle the big issues such as the climate emergency, inequality or spiralling energy bills. People increasingly see that the Green Party has answers to the problems in our society and economy, whether it’s revolutionising work, empowering every person to reach their potential, creating a fairer, greener future, or leading global efforts to avert climate breakdown. I want our transformative ideas to become reality and look forward to sharing our exciting programme with as many people as I can, with your help.”
Wendy Armour, Coordinator for the North Shropshire Green Party said: "We are delighted to have Councillor Mike Isherwood as our prospective parliamentary candidate. He has shown himself to be a really hard working councillor and a genuine and caring person commited to doing his very best for people. We have great confidence in his ability to make a difference through his work on the urgent need to tackle climate change and taking every opportunity to improve the lives of residents."
