Reading Green Party launch manifesto for a more caring town

Reading Green Party candidates Kizzi Johannessen and councillor Rob White launch their local election mini-manifesto calling for courageous and principled policies to create a more caring town.

The Reading Green Party are standing candidates in every Reading Ward at the upcoming elections and are hoping to successfully defend Park Ward where Councillor Rob White is standing. They are also hoping to make gains in Redlands where Kizzi Johannessen is working to improve on her second place finish from last year.

Green councillors will:

• stand up for public services: children's centres, libraries and swimming pools
• work to tackle homelessness and for more council housing
• campaign for a real living wage to reduce poverty
• create a joined up cycle network and charge highly polluting vehicles to cut congestion and pollution
• reduce the amount of waste, fly tipping and litter

Rob White, Green Party candidate for Park Ward said: "Our vision for Reading is as a modern, sustainable town that's a fairer, healthier, more affordable place to live. We want our local communities to thrive."

Kizzi Johannessen, Green Party candidate for Redlands Ward said: "Reading's three Green councillors and its campaigners have a track record of hard work, including working with the community to save Arthur Hill swimming pool, standing up for children's centres and protecting green spaces like the Thames Side from roadbuilding, even getting the Council to become a living wage employer. The more Green councillors people elect in May, the more of a difference we will be able to make."
