We are very pleased to anounce that Darren Woodiwiss Selected as Green Party Candidate for Harborough in the 2017 General Election. Darren's Statement:
My name is Darren Woodiwiss and I am a resident of Market Harborough. Professionally I am an Agile Software-engineer and I am married with three children.
I have always been keenly interested in the environment and the issues regarding the sustainability of our world. I co-founded Transition-Town-Market-Harborough in 2007 and through this group have been actively promoting the goal of sustainability. I initiated the bid process to the "Big Lottery" that led to the award of £1 million to run a sustainability project know as “Sustainable-Harborough”. I am also a voluntary director of the not-for-profit company “Harborough Energy”.
I became politically active prior to the last General Election feeling that none of the traditional parties represented my views and having watched in dismay as the polemic policies of various governments dragged the poor NHS and education systems this way and that to satisfy political ideologies. With the growth of the Green party and its intention to give people the chance to vote for a sustainable future I felt I had no choice but to get involved.
It will be my mission to give the community more control over future housing developments. Drive through the requirements for better quality building, give the residents of the Harborough constituency a voice in the local political process, protect local health provision and fight for quality local jobs.
I hope that you share this vision of a better, healthier, more equitable future and vote for the Green Party on June 8th.
