Candidate for Macclesfield

James Booth

Green Party General Election Candidate

I am the Secretary (from January 2017) and Elections Officer (from January 2018) of the Cheshire East Green Party. I stood in the 2017 General Election for Macclesfield, and also have campaigned in Poynton in 2015 supporting our candidate for councillor, actually my mum, and in Macclesfield Central from 2017 to 2019 on behalf of our candidate, John Knight. I stood for Hurdsfield in the 2019 local elections, having led a campaign for recycling facilities for flats in Hurdsfield. I am now working on campaigns in Poynton and Adlington (where I grew up), and Sutton.

I am one of the leaders of the youth group at St Michael’s, Macclesfield (from 2007), and am also a trustee of Cre8 (from 2017), which works to help disadvantaged young people from the Moss Estate, Macclesfield. I am a member of the Macclesfield churches’ Eco-Group (from 2017), which campaigns on issues such as climate change and is working on adopting green solutions at a local level, for example, solar panels on St Michael’s roof as an energy source. I acted as a trustee of St Michael’s Church, Macclesfield (from 2012 to 2019), as well as being the assistant manager of an amateur football team, St Peter’s, who play at Windmill Street, Macclesfield (from 2015).

We need to make it easier for people to live healthy, fulfilling, sustainable lives. Vote Green for a positive change to our society and our planet.
