Local Council and European elections were held on 22 May 2014
For the Council elections, in Highgate, sitting Green Councillor Maya de Souza who was first elected in the ward in 2006 stood down after 8 years. She says: "Working both as a civil servant and a councillor has never been an easy balancing act, and as a result of changes in my role, sadly I don’t feel able to continue with this. Working with the committed, diverse and stimulating people in the Ward and in Camden has been one of the most fulfilling parts of being a councilor and I’d like to thank you all for your support.”
The new Green councillor for Highgate ward is Sian Berry, who first stood in the ward in 2002 and works as a transport campaigner. Also standing were Matt Johnston, a local campaigner on planning issues and an architectural designer, and Robert McCracken QC, a member and founder of community organisations in Camden and a leading planning and environment lawyer.
A full slate of candidates for other wards also stood and they achieved 15% of the vote across Camden - read about all your Green candidates here
