Green partyApril Clark

Why should people vote for me?
April joined the Green party as part of the “green surge” in 2015 and believes she is standing up for a better kind of politics.

She said: “I joined the party angry that alternative voices were being silenced by the media at the time - unfortunately this has still not changed. We need to take back control of Brexit from the Tories who are approaching it like a coup. We need to ensure the environment, the NHS, small businesses and future generations are protected in the process.”

LabourDylan Jones

Why should people vote for me?
Born and raised in Kent, Dylan Jones is proud to have been named as the Labour parliamentary candidate for Tonbridge and Malling. Currently working as an operations manager for Royal Mail, Mr Jones knows the area well.

He said: “I am proud to work for a company that pays above the living wage and provides permanent jobs with annual leave and sick pay. However, I am concerned by the growth in companies that hire people as ‘self-employed’ or on ‘zero hours’ contracts, and the creation of the ‘gig’ economy where workers have no guaranteed income.”
