Stephen Clarke to stand in Brentford West

7 July 2021

The Council Elections in May 2022 are only ten months away and the Hounslow Greens already have a candidate for every ward in the Borough. In Brentford West, Stephen Clark will be standing for the Party. ‘This will be one of the hardest-fought local elections for years,’ Stephen said, ‘it’s time the Labour monopoly gave way to a clear, unequivocal green voice ready to ensure all the Council’s promises on air pollution and carbon emissions become reality’.
