Siân Berry, Green Party national Principal Speaker and Kentish Town resident has been named as the party’s candidate following a ballot of all party members in London.
Siân said: “Life is a struggle for ordinary people in London. If It’s not the chaos of our transport network, it’s the high cost of living, the daily struggle to make a living wage, or crazy levels of rent and mortgages.
Our vision is clear: a fairer, greener, healthier London. This is a city run on a human scale, which enriches the lives of everyone.”
As one of the Green Party’s two national Principal Speakers Siân already has a growing public profile. She is the public face of the anti-4x4s movement and her high profile campaigning has been crucial in bringing forward proposals for higher charges for gas guzzlers in London.
Green London Assembly member Darren Johnson said: “While the other parties are struggling to find credible candidates, Siân Berry will bring passion and vision to an otherwise dull campaign.”
