PRESS RELEASE - Dan Greenwood selected as Green Candidate in Golcar By Election

Dan Greenwood Golcar's Green Candidate and Cllr Andrew Cooper

The Greens have selected a local music teacher as its candidate for the forthcoming Golcar By-Election. Dan Greenwood is 41 lives in Longwood and owns a business, ‘The Boom Rooms’ based in Milnsbridge which provides rehearsal and recoding facilities to a range of local musicians.

Dan has been a member of the Green Party for 8 years and joined because,

“there was nothing  out there in mainstream politics which appealed to me. The Greens offer a principled alternative that works for social and environmental justice. By Elections are always an opportunity for local people to vote for something different from their usual party allegiances so I’m looking forward to this election campaign”

Dan is a strong supporter of the Red and Green Club in Milnsbridge and has helped organise and performed at a benefit at the club recently. He is a keen cyclist and runner and has recently completed his 50th Park Run at Greenhead Park.

Dan has a music degree from Huddersfield University and is a qualified teacher. He was brought up and educated in Huddersfield and has 3 children who attend local schools.

Councillor Andrew Cooper, Leader of the Greens on Kirklees Council, said

“it is great to have Dan as our Candidate in this important By-Election with his strong local connections and commitment to the community he lives in. There is a real opportunity here for the people of Golcar , Milnsbridge, Cowlersley and Longwood to reject the local Party machines and to back a Candidate who is independent  of them.  The Greens have a strong track record in Kirklees with 5 Green Party Councillors elected. It would be marvellous to have Dan as our 6th.”
