Candidate for Blackley and Broughton

David Jones

Green Party General Election Candidate

Born and bred in Broughton, I am an environmental scientist by profession and have worked on environmental and energy projects across Europe during the past three decades. I also helped to write the Green Party's current Energy Policy.

It has not been the science, the engineering nor the technology that has been holding back the fight against environmental degradation or climate change. Rather, it has been the short term political expediency exercised by those currently in power that has brought us to the precipice that we now face.

The only way to overcome this, as well as securing social justice for everyone, is to end the Conservative/Labour cartel that has held sway in Westminster for the past century.
Between 2017 and December 2019, there will be some 2,500 people in Blackley & Broughton becoming eligible to vote in a General Election for the first time, and I want them and everyone else to have the Green Party option in this election and in every future election.

An active member of the Green Party since 2012, I have helped to build on and develop the Green Party's activities across Salford, Greater Manchester and the North West region. I have been the Green Party's Election Agent in Salford since 2014, as well as being the Green Party's Election Agent for the Greater Manchester Mayoral Election in 2017 and the North West's Election Agent for the European Parliamentary Elections in 2014 and, most recently, in 2019 helping Gina Dowding to become the first Green Party MEP for the North West.
