Thank you to everyone who voted Green in the local elections here in Manchester, and a special thank you to all our candidates and activists who gave their time, energy and enthusiasm to what we feel is the strongest Green campaign in Manchester in a long time.
We totalled 17,402 votes and were the second most popular party in 13 out of 32 wards. Our best result was in Whalley Range where Issy Patience received over 1400 votes.
That wasn't enough to get a Green councillor this time round, but our result shows that there's a real need for accountability, transparency and Green politics in our city.
We're resuming our campaign activity shortly and have a busy year ahead. If you want to support our vision for a cleaner, greener Manchester please do join The Green Party and get involved.
