Sian was elected in May 2014. She lives on Fortess Road next to Tufnell Park tube station and has been active in local campaigns since 2001, first as an anti-war campaigner, and then on transport and pollution issues. She co-founded the Alliance Against Urban 4x4s in 2003 with other local activists, gaining notoriety for creative campaigning, including spoof Camden Council parking tickets warning of the inappropriateness of large four-wheel-drive vehicles in cities.
In the Green Party, Sian has been candidate for Hampstead and Highgate in the 2005 General Election, national Campaigns Co-ordinator, Principal Speaker from 2006 to 2007 and candidate for Mayor of London in 2008.
In the election for Mayor she competed against Boris Johnson and Ken Livingstone on a platform of making London more affordable with lower transport fares, housing costs and energy bills, and proposed a free insulation programme to cover every home.
Sian has written three books on green living, mending and upcycling, and now works as a road-building and sustainable transport campaigner for the charity Campaign for Better Transport. Her key issues for Camden-wide action as a councillor are employment conditions and the Living Wage, preserving community services, housing, energy, air pollution and transport.
