Green Party MEP Alexandra Phillips will be in Reigate town centre on Friday 25 October, 2pm – 4pm, to meet local residents and discuss the party’s “Green New Deal”.
“Alex will be visiting towns and cities across the region to discuss plans for a Green New Deal, which would see us make huge strides towards achieving crucial environmental carbon-neutral targets, as well as revitalising the economy, industry, and training prospects for workers of all ages.
A Green New Deal is all about giving power back to communities – enabling them to choose how funding is spent and investing in local projects. The EU referendum made clear that huge swathes of the British public don’t feel in control of their own futures and don’t feel listened to in Westminster; Alex believes that a Green New Deal would force politicians to put power back to the people.
She’ll be travelling around in a fully electric bus and is hosting a meet and greet for anyone to come and have a chat. She’d be only too happy to talk to any residents who have questions or want to know more about a Green New Deal and what the Greens are pushing for in Brussels.
Alex and her team will be setting up stall in Reigate town centre on Friday 25th October between 2-4pm.”
The location will be outside what was Lloyd’s, near the Old Town Hall.
Alex is one of ten MEPs for the South East region of the UK, into which Reigate falls. The ten MEPs are made up of representatives from the Brexit Party (4), Liberal Democrats (3), Conservative (1), Green (1), Labour (1). The elections were held in May.
