GE Candidates 2017

Jonathan Hornett will be the Green Party candidate in Wellingborough. Jonathan has been a member of the Green Party for 12 years, and has represented them at 13 local elections and 3 national elections. He is a keen supporter of local businesses and has campaigned extensively for renewable energy and animal welfare. His message to the people of Wellingborough is “I am standing to offer people the chance to vote positively; positively for a party that has policies that work for people both young and old, positively for a party that stands up for animals and works hard to protect the environment; and positively for a candidate that understands local issues and wants to work with local people to build a better more sustainable future for all. Think green, vote Green Party in 2017.”

The candidate representing the Green Party in Corby is Steve Scrutton.  Steve has been a member of the Green Party for over 10 years, and has stood in many local elections. Steve said, ‘I have good political knowledge and sensitivity.  I will place the environment at the forefront of my campaign as well as fighting for a more equal society. I fully support the Green Party’s policy of having a ratification referendum on the final Brexit deal.”

Scott Mabbutt will be the Green Party candidate for Northampton South. Scott lives in Northampton and currently works at Kettering General Hospital.  Scott said, “I have spent my adult life caring for sick people in our County. I feel that my job gives me a unique insight into the problems facing our society and how they have been exacerbated by the current government.”

The Green Party presents a future based on protecting our planet for future generations, and for providing inspiration and practical support to the downtrodden in society. The Green Party will also fight against the Conservative’s agenda of a ‘Hard’ Brexit and will campaign for a ratification referendum on the final deal.
