Its time for the election of the Green Party national Executive. Some positions have only a single candidate, others have none and have been reopened. The following are contested.
Tracy Dighton-Brown is standing again. Caroline Lucas, Jenny Jones, Derek Wall & Jean Lambert are said to support her.
Two well known Green campaigners and bloggers Rupert Read and Jason Kitcat are standing as a jobshare.
I will be voting for Rupert and Jason, as I know them, and they have a lot to bring to the position.
I met Jason 10 years ago working at Sunseed; it can be a small world sometimes. I was very impressed with Rupert in the Norwich North by election, he became a candidate with little notice, and ran a very strong campaign. They represent some of the strongest of recent Green sucesses; Brighton and Norwich.
There is also a contest for Chair;
Jayne Forbes has the support of Caroline Lucas, Jenny Jones & Jean Lambert.
Rayyan Mirza Green campaigners and blogger.
Again I'm voting for Rayyan as I've known him as a blogger, and met him campaigning in Norwich recently. Jayne also sounds like a good candidate.
I like that Rayyan has given a link to Jayne on his blog, Jayne has not yet reciprocated.
