Green candidates for London Mayor and GLA list

From the London Green Party

Less than 48 hours to go ... But there's still time for you to get involved in our Mayoral hustings THIS Saturday (11th July).
 
Yes, in less than 2 days London Green Party's Mayoral hustings will take place at Birkbeck College - start time 1.45pm, finish around 4.30pm.
 
Our six wannabee Green Mayoral candidates (announced below) will face each other, London Green members and members of the press in a Question Time style event which that will help you decide who you want to represent you as our Mayoral candidate.
 
There are still some places left in the audience for this event that could determine who you vote for in the selection. You could be there to put your question in person to the candidates. However, you do need to book your place in advance (don't worry, it's free!) and you can do this by clicking here for more details and tickets.
 
The event will be filmed, and we will be taking questions live on twitter to ask the candidates. If you would like to submit a question to be considered please email it to caroline.allen@greenparty.org.uk, with the subject 'Mayoral Hustings Question'. You can tweet during the event using the hashtag #GreenHustings (but don't forget that if you are tweeting using an official account you should not do anything that may be considered to promote any individual candidate(s).)
 
The Assembly list hustings will be taking place on the afternoon of Sunday 19th of July.
 
The Green Party currently have two Assembly Members, both selected via the regional lists – Darren Johnson and Baroness Jenny Jones. With the Green Party vote share increasing by more than three times in the recent General Election and our membership surging, the London Elections in May 2016 present the party with a fantastic opportunity to increase our representation on the Assembly. This means the candidates you select matter more than ever.
 
Click here for full details and tickets to see the candidates in action - these are free but you must sign up in advance to attend.
