The Green Party candidates for North Bermondsey ward in the Southwark Council elections on Thursday 3rd May 2018 are Kevin Jones and Clare Cummings.
Kevin Jones is a freelance consultant who has lived in Bermondsey for ten years. He has been a long-term advocate of policies that help protect the environment, and this led to him join the Green Party in 2016. “I’m keen that we make the borough a healthier, cleaner and happier place to live and work. Priority areas for me are: affordable housing for families; excellent education facilities for children; and a transport strategy that ensures we have reliable and frequent services and also invests in infrastructure that has a positive impact on the environment, including increasing the number of electric and hydrogen buses on the roads, further extending London’s cycling network, and increasing the number of charge points for electric vehicles.”
Clare Cummings has lived in Southwark for the past four years and is alarmed at the local injustices facing many Londoners in the form of air pollution, access to housing, road traffic fatalities and threats to our shared public spaces. Clare has campaigned with Fossil Free Southwark to persuade Southwark Council to divest its pension funds from fossil fuel companies, showing that global challenges can be addressed locally. As London continues to grow and is affected by global and national changes, Clare is committed to fighting to make Southwark a liveable place for everyone - healthy, affordable, sustainable and where people can know and trust each other.
