Hounslow Green Party has announced that Tony Firkins will stand again for Feltham and Heston in the 2017 General Election.  Tony also stood in the 2015 election for the same seat. 

Tony has lived in Brentford for over 30 years. He works for a mobile phone network operator, specializing in the overall reliability of the service and the IT systems that make it all work.

His major environmental interest is in climate change and he has worked with the Green Party to develop national policies to help prevent catastrophic damage from global warming.

He believes in the maxim of "Think global, act local" which has led him to be active in local campaigns against Heathrow expansion and addressing air pollution.

As a keen cyclist and walker, he wishes to see a much greener Feltham and Heston less dominated by the car.

Tony said: “The Green Party isn’t just another political party. Green politics is about ensuring we continue to have a habitable world for humankind to live in.

In making decisions about the transport we use daily, the housing we live in, the stuff we buy and the food we eat, we need to consider the natural world.

Climate change and other pollution is a real threat to our way of life but also an opportunity to move towards a healthier, cleaner, peaceful, fairer, sustainable and more beautiful place to live, work and play.”
