I joined the Green Party to challenge the inequalities that are increasing in our society. A more equal country is better for us all. The Green Party is the only party which consistently works towards a fairer Britain. I also know that I, and my generation, do not own the world. We are custodians who must hand over clean air, fresh water and plenty of green spaces for our children and grandchildren. Again the Green Party is clear that we can encourage businesses to flourish without destroying the basics that we all rely on.  The qualities of thinking and planning that attracted me to the Party almost 10 years ago still underpin our policies and fit with my ideals. Its the only party that has made a real difference for people!

I have been concerned about what humans are doing to each other and to the environment since I can remember, and I feel desperately sad – and angry - that democracy has been decimated to the point we are at now, with police brutally attacking peaceful fracking protectors and students who are standing up for our rights to fairness and a healthy environment.  I will fight for a fairer, more equal and healthier society both here and across the world, since we are all connected: what goes around comes around.  Living in Uganda helped me see the bigger picture, and my grand-children help me look into the future.  I see the old political paradigm handing power to amoral corporations as very largely responsible for the critical state we are in.  Radical change is needed now.

Your local Green Councillors

The Green Party has two local councillors in the Harrogate District, both of whom sit on Knaresborough Town Council

Knaresborough Town Council

 

 Councillor Bill Rigby

Councillor Bill Rigby - Scriven Park Ward, Mayor of Knaresborough May 2016 - May 2017

For a long time, I ducked out of politics.  Certainly, I was aware that the world was in a bit of a mess, but it took ages for me to realise two things: first there is no need for a 'mess'; the world should be much much better than it is, and second, the actions of my generation are largely responsible.

I don't want to leave this dreadful legacy behind for my grandchildren without doing as much as humanly possible to remedy things.  Over a decade of working with the Greens have shown me that honesty and integrity has a place in politics, and that ordinary people are looking for leaders who put these qualities first, so I am happy to help make this happen.
