Your Green Party CandidateI have lived in Wellingborough with my wife and two children for 15 years. I have stood in local elections for the Green Party 12 times and three times nationally including in the General Election in Corby and East Northants in 2015.  I own the Hornett Wholefoods shop, run a gardening business and organise a whist drive.

I am standing to offer people the chance to vote positively; positively for a party that has policies that work for people both young and old, positively for a party that stands up for animals and works hard to protect the environment, and positively for a candidate that understands local issues and wants to work with local people to build a better more sustainable future for all.

If you want a safer, cleaner, greener Wellingborough and Rushden, think green, vote Green Party in 2017.  Vote for Jonathan Hornett in the General Election.

Panel 1


Vote Green TwigsAbout people powered politics:

  • Imagine a political system that puts people first.
  • Imagine an economy that gives everyone their fair share.
  • Imagine a society capable of supporting everyone’s needs.
  • Imagine a planet protected from the threat of climate change now and for the generations to come.

That’s the world Jonathan wants to help create and he believes that we have the means to do it:

  • By ensuring that everyone has access to a secure job that pays at least the Living Wage we will build an economy that works for the common good, not just the privileged few.
  • By restoring public services to public hands we will ensure they are run in the interests of the people that use them.
  • By investing in renewable energy and reducing our reliance on fossil fuels, we will build a stable and sustainable society that protects our planet from climate change.
  • By building more social rented homes and bringing abandoned buildings back into use we will ensure that everyone has a secure and affordable place to live.

In Wellingborough and Rushden he is campaigning:

  • To stop building on green field sites and believes that Northampton, Wellingborough and Rushden will soon become one urban conurbation if not stopped.
  • To maintain and improve, not cut our police fire, health and care services to reduce crime, speeding and to better our care and emergency health provision.
  • To improve air quality and council maintenance services.  The Green Party is monitoring our air quality and carrying out litter picks across Northamptonshire; if elected Jonathan would introduce schemes to improve the environment in Wellingborough and Rushden.
  • To protect the area’s trees and plant new ones.
  • For investment in renewable energy sources, starting with putting solar panels on publicly owned buildings.  He supports local wind farms and he has helped the New Albion Wind Farm and Burton Wold extensions to be approved.
  • To end all radioactive waste dumping at Kingscliffe, to kill off nuclear energy, and to stop the new Trident replacements.
  • To see the hunting ban extended to include all bloodsports and get the ban enforced; he is very concerned that the Conservatives will totally scrap the ban.
  • To raise the profile of and to promote local businesses, services, charities, public transport and cycling schemes.
  • To help and support local people in making Wellingborough and Rushden safer, cleaner and greener.
