Gerard Boyd, Green Party candidate in Denton North East



My name is Gerard Boyd and I am standing again for the Green Party in Denton North East where I live. I know improvements to the area have been carried out but the council must not use the Cuts as an excuse to do nothing more. My main worry is that the Council is beginning to use the Cuts as a reason for reducing and privatising social care services. This is not fair – better to make savings by cutting the number of managers on top salaries and by reducing public sector waste and energy bills. Vulnerable people can be protected from the effects of the banking crisis – they should not be made to pay for the greed of the rich.

Our environment must be protected – no fracking, no building on the Green Belt.

The Green Party believes in fairness – remember to Vote Green on May 22nd for a better future.
