Ian McCormickFull name? Ian James McCormick

Party? Green Party

Ward? Garrison


Occupation? Field Interviewer

What has made you decide to stand for election? To offer people a real choice, rather than the usual option of the three established political parties. To increase the profile of the Green Party.

What are the key issues for your ward? Access to good jobs, affordable housing, public transport, access to green space, litter, traffic congestion and speeding.

If you were elected, how would you keep your constituents informed? By blogs, Twitter, email and surgeries.

Anything else to add? Support for the Green Party in Lancashire is growing and a new branch has recently been formed covering Preston, Chorley and South Ribble. The branch welcomes new members.
