Hounslow Green Party

Greens Party announces six candidates in Chiswick Riverside and Chiswick Homefields ward

30 March 2018

Maggie Winkworth

Maggie Winkworth is standing in the Chiswick Homefields ward for Hounslow Green Party at the council elections on 3rd May.  As a counselling psychologist Maggie is particularly interested in the support and development of local mental health services and community projects which currently struggle to survive, let alone expand as is urgently needed.   

Martin Bleach

Martin Bleach and Nicole Ruduss are also standing for the Green Party in Chiswick Homefields.

Daniel Goldsmith

Daniel Goldsmith is standing in Chiswick Riverside ward for the Green Party.  Daniel is an IT consultant.  He lives in Chiswick with his wife and two sons. 

Daniel is a keen cyclist and supports Cycling Superhighway 9 (CS9) from Brentford to Olympia.  When his family was younger he was fearful of taking them cycling because there were few proper protected cycle lanes; he had to ride in the road and risk his young sons being hit by a car.   Friends at work have told that they would cycle, but worry about the risk of crashes.  He believes that a top quality local network of cycling lanes in Hounslow, including CS9, will encourage cycling, and reduce car use, accidents and air pollution.

Daniel said “Tony Arbour, the conservative GLA member for South West London, and the conservative councillors are completely out of touch with local opinion.  They claimed that 99% of local residents were against CS9 and the consultation results show that 60% are in favour.  TfL traffic modelling predicts a decrease in motor traffic on the Chiswick High road, and this has been ignored by opponents of the scheme”. 

“Some good points including loss of pedestrian space on the Chiswick High Road were raised during the consultation, and these need to be taken into account.  We must all work together to work out how to share our crowded London streets in a way that encourages walking and cycling”.

Fay Miller and Jane Forrester are also standing for the Green Party in Chiswick Riverside.
