Green candidates announced

The Green Party have announced their candidates for the forthcoming election in both Telford and The Wrekin constituencies.

From their crowdfunder campaign:

John Adams is standing as the Green Party parliamentary candidate in Telford. He came to live in Shropshire in 1987 to study Agriculture and subsequently worked at Harper Adams University for over 20 years until 2018. In the 2019 general election he represented the Green Party in North Shropshire and now lives in Stirchley. 

Pat McCarthy is standing as the Green Party candidate in The Wrekin. He has lived in Wellington for 25 years, served as a chair of his residents’ association and as a Town Councillor and worked in a variety of community development roles. He is a Shared Lives carer and volunteers for Wellington ecargo bike delivery scheme.

The crowdfunding campaign is hoping to garner cash to pay for at least part of the £500 deposit that each candidate will have to lodge with their nomination papers.
