A Wooburn Green resident and Green Party candidate will fight for the Beaconsfield seat at next month's snap election. 

The Chiltern Green Party has selected Russell Secker as the Green Party candidate for the Beaconsfield Constituency ahead of the General Election on June 8. 

Russell has worked as an NHS volunteer and at a Trussell Trust foodbank and has served on the Green Party Regional Council, helping to shape the party’s 2015 General Election manifesto.

As a long-standing environmental campaigner, Russell believes that voting Green will send politicians a "powerful message which cannot be ignored". 

He said: "It is vital that we stand up for our environment during and after Brexit negotiations.

"In many ways Europe has championed the environment and proved to be good for the natural world and sustainability. We can’t afford to allow backtracking on that progress."

He added: "The Green Party has a great range of progressive policies designed to create a fairer society for future generations.

"I believe we need to move towards a clean and sustainable economy which is underpinned by decent living wages, not foodbank hand-outs.”
