Katie WithamKatie Witham - Green Party Candidate for Ryburn Ward May 2018


I've loved living in Calderdale for 15 years, and am keen to offer my skills and experience to support my community. I work on disability and environmental issues, as well as peace, and social justice campaigns while living with a chronic illness. I'm involved with local singing, dancing, hiking and environmental groups.

As your green councillor I will:

  •     Speak up and campaign for an improvement in local services and amenities so they can be accessible to ALL residents,
  •     Fight to ensure that development in our area is appropriate and sustainable with a council commitment to renewable energy and green technologies.
  •     Promote and encourage communication,  kindness, and inclusion in our communities.
  •     Prioritise an efficient, affordable and accessible public transport system.
  •     Work hard to promote local initiatives to help combat climate change and flooding.
  •     Help to grow the local green economy through supporting local business and social enterprises.

In the current climate of austerity, apathy and despair the green party offer hope of a more positive caring future.
