|Kirklees Green Leader Cllr Andrew|
Green Party Leader on Kirklees Council Andrew Cooper said,
"It's great to welcome Steve as a new Green Party member . I've seen many of the environmental projects Steve has championed on the Project Mirfield website and it is clear he will be a real asset to the Green cause as he already is to the community he represents"
Councillor Cooper expanded on the growing voice of Greens at the local level in Kirklees.
"As Steve has joined the Green Party this means that we now have representatives on 4 out of the 5 Parish Councils in Kirklees. In the May local elections we won 10 seats on Kirkburton Parish Council. In the Wooldale Ward Darryl Gould topped the Poll to become our representative on Holme Valley Parish Council and Sonia King has recently been coopted onto Meltham Town Council. What they all share is a positive commitment to improve the environment in the area they live and I look forward to working with them."
