Green Party candidate for Upper Bann
Simon wants to contribute to the development of a new kind of politics in Northern Ireland that moves beyond the tribalism and waste that has held our society back.
“The Green Party is key to this new politics in Northern Ireland,” says Simon.
“We will tackle key issues such as the unacceptable levels of poverty, the educational underachievement rampant in our communities, and the staggering failure to deal with the major problem of suicide which claims too many lives every year.
“I am a teacher and have been for many years now. I am passionate about education and concerned about the impact of cuts on the quality of education in a context where too many young people are already being badly let down.”
“I will stand to challenge the worst effects of austerity, protect the most vulnerable in our society and promote environmental sustainability.”
