Green to go for it.

How disappointing to read that so many local people are either too busy, not interested or too disillusioned with local politics to even consider standing for the elections in May.

Fortunately, I know a busy working mother of two tucked away up in Hazelwood Close who has decided to put herself up for both Honiton town and East Devon district elections.

With a shortage of younger people and women in politics, 38-year-old Sharon Pavey hopes to offer a new Green perspective on both town and district councils.

Her energy and enthusiasm are so contagious, I will be out with her next week putting Green Party newsletters through the 3,000 doors in the St Michael’s ward. Kind Regards
