My name is Jacintha Manchester and I am standing as the Green Party candidate for Denton West.
I am a veterinary surgeon, working and living with my family in Tameside.
I believe that the Green Party provides a real alternative to the agendas put forward by the mainstream contestants.
The Green Party seeks to address global issues like human and animal rights, climate change and exploitation of the natural world and local issues like healthcare, housing, accessible public transport, litter, loss of green spaces and natural habitats and adequate policing.
Within Tameside we would oppose fracking because of the huge environmental impact for little returns. There should be no building on the Green Belt – much needed housing should be on brownfield sites.
I hope that a lot of people will now consider voting “Greener for Cleaner”.
