Jacqi Hodgson for Totnes

“As a Green Party Member of Parliament, I will bring my strong background in community work to benefit all the residents living in this constituency. 

I believe in supporting the community voice and helping people understand the issues so that everyone can be more involved in decisions affecting their lives. 

The current economic challenges mean we need hard working politicians to ensure everyone has good access to jobs, facilities and services that support and enrich our lives. The Green Party offers a vision for positive change.”

The Conservatives have done huge damage to our country and are dragging us into a bigger mess with Brexit. The rich are getting richer, the poor are getting poorer. There is a groundswell of public support for a unity candidate to be put forward to challenge the Conservatives at this election. Despite many hours of negotiation, only the Green Party are willing to do this in Devon. So we the Green Party invite you, the voters, to show Lib Dems and Labour that YOU believe in a Progressive Alliance and vote Green Party at this election. By putting our votes together we can win this election.
