Green Councillors And Candidates

We currently have three Green Party councillors representing local residents in the Liverpool City Council chamber.

Our councillors and local party activists work all year round - not just at election time – holding the majority Labour administration to account and striving to make council decisions beneficial for everyone.

Green voters elected a record number of local councillors in the last local elections and across the globe the Green vote continues to grow.

No one expects you to do everything yourself. Along with local, regional and national training and support, there is the Association of Green Councillors (AGC). The AGC is an independent and autonomous network of around 600 elected Green Party Councillors from every level of local government. It exists to provide support to Green Party Councillors as well as to those aspiring to become elected.
