Greens announce local elections candidates 27 March 2018

The Green Party has announced that it will be fielding six candidates in the two Hounslow wards of Chiswick Riverside and Chiswick Homefields. There will also be one Green candidate standing in Ealing borough’s Southfields ward.

Maggie Winkworth, Martin Bleach and Nicole Ruduss are the candidates for Chiswick Homefields. Daniel Goldsmith, Fay Miller and Jane Forrester will be standing in Chiswick Riverside.

Daniel stood for Brentford and Isleworth in the 2015 general election, in which he received 9.4% of the vote, and had previously stood for election as a local councillor in Chiswick Riverside in 2014. He is a keen cyclist and supports Cycling Superhighway 9 (CS9) from Brentford to Olympia, believing that “a top quality local network of cycling lanes in Hounslow, including CS9, will encourage cycling, and reduce car use, accidents and air pollution”.

Maggie is a psychologist who provides counselling. She is particularly interested in the support and development of local mental health services and community projects “which currently struggle to survive, let alone expand as is urgently needed”.
