At a meeting on 26th November at Churchfield House in Great Harwood the East Lancashire Green Party counted the votes cast and declared Kerry Gormley their Candidate for Hyndburn at the General Election on 7th May 2015. Kerry is not new to politics in this area having been the Green Party Candidate in Hyndburn in 2010 and having stood several times in local elections in Hyndburn. She is the manager of the ONE Planet shop in Abbey Street, Accrington and an active green campaigner.
The Green Party are currently polling with their highest figures ahead of a General Election since 1989 and polling experts say this has paved the way for the 2015 General Election to be a five-horse race.
Kerry is supported by an active local party - the East Lancashire Green Party. She says “The Green party presents the hope of a different kind of economy and society that works for the common good within the limits of one planet.”
