Beverley residents will have a chance to vote for the Green Party in two wards. They have a candidate standing in St Mary’s Ward and also Beverley Rural.
Mike Farman has been named as their candidate in the St Mary’s while Phil Grimes will be hoping to win a seat in Beverley Rural.

“Hull & East Riding Green Party are delighted to announce candidates for the 2nd May Local Elections, including a record number of 9 across the East Riding, and 11 in Hull.”
East Riding Co-ordinator Michael Jackson, East Wolds & Coastal candidate welcomed the volume of candidates his party are putting forward.
“I’m delighted that due to our recent growth more people than ever will have the opportunity to vote Green across the East Riding, with familiar faces like myself in the East Wolds, and enthusiastic new candidates, from Pocklington to Hornsea, motivated by the urgent need for a fairer economy, decent public services, and a safe climate.”
Mike Lammiman who is standing in Avenue in Hull feels a vote for the Green’s can bring change. He is pledging to protect local services while also fighting for a sustainable green economy.
