General Election 2019
Sutton Green Party General Election Campaign launch
The Green Party has launched its election campaign and announced the candidates they have chosen to stand in the two Sutton seats.
Tracey Hague – Carshalton and Wallington
Tracey lives with her partner and two sons in Addiscombe. Tracey is a founding member of the Friends of Addiscombe Railway Park, a Beaver Leader (Scout Association) and a qualified Project Manager in the energy and buildings sector. Tracey was an active member of Stop The Incinerator campaign and has stood for the Green Party at Council, London, and European elections.
Tracey said “People are crying out for a new kind of politics. Everyone is fed up of the country being run for the benefit of bankers, media moguls, and property developers. Only the Green Party is working for the benefit of everyone: tackling inequality, filthy air, a struggling transport network and a broken housing system.”
Claire Jackson-Prior Sutton and Cheam
Claire has lived in the Sutton and Cheam constituency since 2002, having grown up on a council estate in Bognor Regis and then living in Enfield for 5 years. She is 47 and married with two children, both of whom attend local schools. She has a degree in Geology from the University of London, having studied at UCL. She has worked in a wholesale newsagent and a photographic agency and is at present a direct seller.
Claire is passionate about the NHS, and is a member of the Keep Our St Helier Campaign. Her children were both born at St Helier, and she herself was treated there for a heart attack in 2008, so she understands the importance of having an acute hospital nearby.
Claire Jackson-Prior said, “The General Election in 2017 will be the first time I'll be standing as a candidate. Our country has a huge problem of economic injustice and we need new thinking to address this. The Green Party’s policies are the way forward for a more just society in the UK.”
