Candidate for Skipton and Ripon
Andy is rooted in the local community having lived in the constituency for 25 years. In 2016 he became the first Green Party District Councillor in Craven and at the last General Election 3,734 people voted for him.
He is a retired further education lecturer and then manager and was Director of Hillsborough College in Sheffield and Director of Young People's Learning for Yorkshire and the Humber. He writes regularly for the Yorkshire Post on nature and on bee keeping and has written for the Independent, the Guardian and Northern Life
He has been an active local campaigner on housing issues fighting to ensure building is for need and to protect the wonderful local countryside against endless new housing estates of large executive homes that are unaffordable for most local people.
During the Referendum Andy campaigned to stay in a heavily reformed EU arguing that we’d end up facing a damaging exit without a deal or get landed with taking all the rules without making any of them.
