South East Essex Green Party selects General Election candidates

4 May 2017

South East Essex parliamentary candidates

Building on the progress made at the 2015 General Election, South East Essex Green Party is for the second time fielding candidates in all four parliamentary constituencies in its catchment area.

Party spokeswoman Vida Mansfield explains: “The Green Party does politics differently. We are funded by ordinary people, not big business. Our policy is set by our members and not shadowy lobbying groups, so we represent the interests of the public.”

The Green Party candidates for the 2017 General Election are:

  • Paul Hill for Rayleigh & Wickford
  • Simon Cross for Rochford & Southend East
  • Dominic Ellis for Southend West

Simon Cross said, “Unlike all other candidates in Rochford and Southend East, I will put decisions over your future and your kids’ futures back in your hands. I will fight for your NHS, schools, closing the poverty gap and protecting your environment.”

“The constituents of Rayleigh and Wickford have an excellent opportunity to help stop the carnage that is being inflicted upon us all in the UK. A Green vote is a fairer vote for all and I am determined to fight for our public services and our families’ futures,” said Paul Hill.

Dominic Ellis added “This election is an opportunity to reject the growing right-wing ideology of the political establishment and support a party that puts everyone's interests first, not just its own.”

Politics can be done differently. Stand with the Green Party for a fairer society.
