Candidate for South West Hertfordshire
Tom Pashby is the Green Party's South West Hertfordshire Parliamentary Candidate for the General Election on 12 December 2019.
Tom grew up in Croxley Green and went to Rickmansworth school. Tom studied environmental science at university and has since worked and volunteered in sustainable energy and climate-focused policy and communications.
In the 2018 local elections, with Three Rivers Green Party having previously not stood a candidate, Tom came second out of five candidates, thanks to a successful campaign in Rickmansworth Town. Campaigning included speaking to residents, finding out what was important to them and acting on it. Actions included getting a speed sensor installed on a dangerous stretch of road, delivering emissions reductions and improved road safety.
Tom said: “The Greens are the only party committed to realistic action on the climate emergency, for a People’s Vote, to campaign for remain, and to heal the wounds from a decade of austerity. Vote Green for a more prosperous future.
“We recognise that infinite economic growth is impossible on a finite planet. Continued support by the other parties for neoliberalism will delivery misery for the many and the sixth mass extinction.
“Remaining as members of the European Union will make the transition to a zero-carbon, prosperous society more achievable. Cross border cooperation is needed now more than ever, but it is important that I and others hoping to stop Brexit seek a democratic mandate in a Peoples’ Vote.”
