The Green Party candidates for South Bermondsey ward in the Southwark Council elections on Thursday 3rd May 2018 are Paul Blackman and Valerie Remy.
Paul Blackman has lived in North Southwark for 30 years and championed the Green Party throughout that time. Paul’s major concerns in the borough are housing, energy, green spaces and traffic pollution. He wants to see a rebalance of our diminished social housing stock; the development of community non-profit, sustainable energy cooperatives, our parks protected and improved, and, as a keen cyclist, he is all too aware of the need to reduce the volume of traffic, so that we can safely live and move around the borough without the risk of being knocked down or asphyxiated. Paul has worked as a journalist specialising in travel, tourism and related environmental issues.
