The Green Party has announced its Erewash candidate.
Victoria Martindale, an animal and environmental campaigner, said: “The Conservative and Labour Party candidates have both voiced their commitments to more public spending cuts. As the Green Party candidate I am standing up against these cuts that hit the poorest and most vulnerable of society the most. ”
She said she wanted to see Ilkeston and Long Eaton flourish as hubs of community-focused businesses and local activity, adding: “I can’t wait to get started with our local election campaign that offers the only hope for real change in May.”
