A blog by Green Party Councillor Andrew Cooper about Kirklees Council and our activity to improve the local and global environment (and also anything that I fancy talking about)

Running for office?
The Conservatives in Kirkburton have the misfortune of having some not very waterproof posters. They've got at least some of them up early and after a few days they're not looking too good following a little bit of rainy weather. I of course sympathise. A few years ago our wall paper paste wasn't thick enough and Green Party posters were soon flapping off boards and the Tories gleefully wrote 'Green Campaign comes unstuck' on their campaign literature along with a photo of a flapping poster.
I am a Green Party Councillor on Kirklees Council and have been since May 1999. I was the Green Party Candidate for the General Election in the Huddersfield Parliamentary Constituency. I work in the energy efficiency/microgeneration sector and have done for the last 20 years or so.
