I have lived in Coventry since 1996, joined the Green Party in 2008, and have been involved in a wide variety of community activities, from debt counselling to Coventry Motofest.

Whoberley – Anne Patterson

Anne Patterson

I have lived in Coventry since 1991 and joined the Green Party in 2010. I work for the NHS as the manager of a community dementia team, so I am very aware of the importance of local services for disabled and vulnerable people. In my spare time I love getting out into the green spaces in and around Coventry and feel strongly about the importance of looking after green spaces for people and wildlife. If elected as a councillor, I would promote the adoption of a Green New Deal for Coventry to focus attention on local businesses and organisations which are tackling the challenge of climate change and providing green jobs for people around the city.

Wyken 1 – Chrissie Brown

Chrissie Brown

I joined the Green Party a few years ago, rejecting Britain’s 2-party system, knowing politics has to be radically different for future generations. I moved from Yorkshire when the charity I work for moved its HQ to Coventry. I love the vibrancy and diversity of this city, its rich history and entrepreneurial spirit. My priorities will be for you and your families to be able to live and work safely and securely, close to good schools, reliable public transport, well-funded health and social services, in pleasant surroundings.
