Liverpool's next cohort of Green Councillors

From a Press Release sent today:

Greens Announce Target Local Election Candidates

Anna Key could become Liverpool’s first Polish born councillor after winning the Green Party’s selection contest for St Michaels. A governor at a local school and a former chair of Liverpool NCT, she will be defending the seat currently held by Cllr John Coyne who will step down in 2015.

Announcing the results of last week’s ballot, Cllr Coyne, leader of the Greens in Liverpool said:

“I’m really pleased that we have a well contested internal ballot and I’m delighted that Anna has been selected to defend the seat in May next year. She brings a great deal of personal campaigning experience from outside the party and is someone who already makes a strong contribution to our community. I think she will make an exceptional councillor.”

The Greens have also announced that David Morgan has been selected to try and capture a second Greenbank seat after Cllr Lawrence Brown’s stunning win in May. The Greens should continue to see a great deal of support due to the possibility of housing being built on Sefton Park Meadows, but will be expecting a close contest against Labour councillor Laura Robertson-Collins who will be defending her seat for the first time.

In other results, Helen Randall will again lead the campaign for the Greens in Mossley Hill ward, Rebecca Lawson in Riverside, Martyn Madeley in Kirkdale and former Liverpool University student Rachael Blackman will contest Central ward. A second round of selections will be taking place in other wards around the city in the Autumn.
