Candidate Bryan Blears, 2019 General Election
Salford and Eccles needs an MP who puts local priorities first
Hello, my name is Bryan Blears and I am proudly standing as the Green Party candidate for Salford and Eccles this General Election.
Over the past year, I have been meeting with communities across Salford who aren’t happy with the direction our city is travelling in. We are suffering from a lack of affordable housing, worsening poverty in our town centres, an increase in knife crime, and traffic and pollution problems across the city.
An MP’s first priority should be to their constituency – to Salford. If elected I will be a voice for this city and stand up for people in Langworthy, Swinton, Eccles, Claremont and Pendlebury, as well as those living closer to the city centre. I will ensure that the residents waiting for dangerous cladding to be replaced on Salford’s tower blocks have to wait no longer. And I will speak up in Parliament for the funding our council and NHS desperately needs.
I will be a local MP you can always contact and rely on. But I will also take on the important work of transforming our economy and society on behalf of The Green Party.
We need to act to reverse the effects of man-made climate change and reshape our economy to put people before corporate greed. Labour has talked the talk when it comes to the environment, but Labour’s plans – to build houses on Salford’s Green Belt and expand Manchester Airport to over double its existing capacity by 2035 – show they can’t be trusted to do what is needed.
People are starting to realise that we need to act now if we are to protect the future. I honestly believe that we can win in Salford, and deliver change across the country, with your help.
Please consider giving me your vote. I won’t let our city down.

"I'm proud to be standing in Worsley. The Green Party in Salford has grown."
Blackley & Broughton MP Candidate 2019
Born and bred in Broughton, David Jones is an environmental scientist by profession and has worked on environmental and energy projects across Europe during the past three decades. He also helped to write the Green Party's current Energy Policy.
David says: "It has not been the science, the engineering nor the technology that has been holding back the fight against environmental degradation or climate change. Rather, it has been the short term political expediency exercised by those currently in power that has brought us to the precipice that we now face. The only way to overcome this, as well as securing social justice for everyone, is to end the Conservative/Labour cartel that has held sway in Westminster for the past century.
Between 2017 and 2019, there will be over 2,000 people in Blackley & Broughton becoming eligible to vote in a General Election for the first time, and I want them and everyone else to have the Green Party option in this election and in every future election."
An active member of the Green Party since 2012, David has helped to build on and develop the Green Party's activities across Salford, Greater Manchester and the North West region. David has been the Green Party's Election Agent in Salford since 2014, as well as being the Green Party's Election Agent for the Greater Manchester Mayoral Election in 2017 and the North West Regional Election Agent for the European Parliamentary Elections in 2014 and, most recently, in 2019 helping Gina Dowding to become the first Green Party MEP for the North West
