Jenny Jones has been a member of the London Assembly since 2000 and was elected as the first Green member of Southwark Council, from 2006 to 2010. On the Assembly, she works on Transport, Housing and Planning, and Policing, with a strong emphasis on sustainability and localism.
She is the Green Party candidate for Mayor of London in 2012.
With the Green Party Conference in Sheffield fast approaching at beginning of September, we at WinkBall.com thought it to be a perfect occasion to speak with the Party’s front-running party members, campaigners, activists and bloggers to set the scene of the current political climate as politicians return from recess.
In preparation for the conference, WinkBall will be speaking to these tops Greens to determine what their political agenda is for the coming term. Specifically, we aim to define what key issues or concerns they feel need to be addressed by the government, their assessment of the implications of the ‘Big Society’, how they fit within the context of social media and grass roots politics, as well as what issues they feel their party needs to confront differently.
