David Says:

My goal is to make Buntingford a Green Leader in Hertfordshire, and Hertfordshire a Green Leader in the UK. A Green Leader in transport; in housing; in planning; in R&D; in green start-ups. Everything. We have so many lost decades under Conservative Councils: endless promises of things like EV charging points, never delivered. They gave us a Shopping Bus that never saw a passenger; a hideous cycle rack that never saw a cycle! Let’s defeat Tory incompetence and lack of Vision. Vote Green – for Buntingford’s sustainable future prosperity. For Hertfordshire’s, for the world’s and our children’s!
