General Election Candidate selected

Tor Pingree

Worcester Green Party members have selected Tor Pingree to stand in the Worcester constituency at the next General Election.

Tor’s key message: “The country is facing a cost of living crisis. We know that creating warm secure homes with better insulation and providing good public transport will tackle both the cost of living crisis and the climate emergency we face. If elected I would be another Green voice at the heart of Westminster to back up the fantastic work already being done by Caroline Lucas MP.”

Tor’s priorities are tackling climate change, eliminating poverty, re-joining the European Union, funding schools and hospitals properly and changing the political culture by introducing a fairer more proportional voting system for all levels of government.

Tor was born in Worcester and works as a teacher at Worcester Sixth Form College. Outside of work and politics, Tor is a keen musician and can often be found playing at Worcester’s live music venues.

Tor said, “The Green Party is firmly established in Worcester and we use our position to promote fair, green initiatives for the benefit of residents. We now have six Green city councillors and one county councillor and we are committed to working cooperatively and responsibly with all the political groups to help run the councils in the best interests of those we represent. We need to extend our ethos and approach to Westminster.”
