The Green Party has elected Tim Stoneman as its candidate for the Walcot ward by-election on 6th April, in what could be their closest race yet.
The Greens hope to reinstate their ‘Group’ status if Tim Stoneman is successfully elected. In 2015, the Greens came very close to being elected in Walcot by just 23 votes.
Tim Stoneman, who was born and raised in locally, is an active volunteer and campaigner, currently working to improve the lives of postgraduate students at the University of Bath.
Tim says: “Walcot’s pressing issues need to be resolved. Air pollution and housing are problems routinely voiced by residents. The Green Party has common sense solutions for these issues and we can bring about real positive change for residents.
“I’m passionate about the ward and passionate about Green policies. The Green Party has a proud history of supporting local residents. Our other Councillor Lin Paterson in Lambridge has been able to achieve incredible things alone. From fighting to keep the 6 and 7 bus route to fighting head on the selling off of social health care services in Bath. This same drive is what I can replicate for Walcot.
“We have seen the council ignore what’s right for local community. The council has decimated public services with budget cuts. It is happy to spend millions on the Park and Ride white elephant that will not fix pollution and congestion issues in Bath, and will risk our heritage status. They have shown that they aren't the Party of local residents.
“The Greens have long stood on the side of residents, putting people, health and the environment before profit. We do not indulge in political point-scoring and benefits for the privileged. I am proud to represent the Green Party so that pro-prosperity, pro-people and pro-planet policies can be heard.”
