The election of Police Commissioners is coming up this week, the Green Party have not put up a candidate simply because we do not believe the person running our police should be a political figure, especially not a party political figure. As it is it should be more a role for an Independent candidate. We therefore have a farce of an election. It happens on November 15th when hardly anyone will come out to vote when it could have been held in the spring or summer. Which means he or she will not have many people backing them. There is no financial backing for election addresses which means independent candidates lose out immediately. When I write this nothing has come through my door. You have to go online to get any idea of what the candidates think. The Green Party is particularly concerned about protecting community policing teams and the need for the police to engage with local residents and councillors about community safety issues. Check out the candidates.http://www.policecrimecommissioner.co.uk/Essex

I would like to invite you to the second in our Green Matters speaker series, coming up this coming Tuesday at 7:30pm in the Simply Café on Queens Road, Buckhurst Hill (opposite Waitrose). Sian Berry is speaking on Smarter Transport - a topic important to us here in Epping Forest as we continue to develop our plans for cycle routes, our campaigns for a new crossing in Buckhurst Hill and "Twenty's Plenty", and prepare for whatever airport madness the government is planning for London.
Do please come yourself, and, importantly, put the poster up where you can and invite / drag your friends and family! The £3 charge includes a "free" posh tea or coffee from the café..
Tuesday November 6th
