Former Hornby Head Teacher Goes Green

John Freeman
Former head of Hornby High School Caroline Jackson has announced that she is intending to stand as a Green Party candidate in Lancaster's John O'Gaunt Ward in the 2011 City Council elections.

"Over the last 20 years, working with many, many parents and young people from all over Lancaster has given me great insight into the problems and ambitions they have for the area and for the future," says Caroline.

"For many years I've been uncomfortable with the throwaway society, with its huge inequalities and disregard for the impact on nature.

"On these and other green issues, I now feel I must stand up and be counted and work for the best possible future for people in Lancaster."

Pursuing these aims, Caroline has been a member of Transition City Lancaster for a year and co-ordinated their launch back in April. Sh also helps create their monthly Diversity Radio programme.

"To me, only the Green Party addresses the real issues of today – I respect the way the local party puts local people and local issues first and want to be part of the team of councillors that serves John O’Gaunt and the whole city."
