Virgil Ierubino, a long term resident, active community member and local business owner, will be standing for the Cambridge Green Party in the Petersfield by-election. More so than ever, we need committed environmentalists elected into public office. Cambridge City Council remains unambitious and rejected our proposal to move Cambridge towards carbon neutrality by 2030.
Only the Green Party in Cambridge is challenging the Council's model of unchecked economic growth; a policy that sees our Green Belt eroded and huge pressure placed on our housing market, services and transport infrastructure.
Economic growth that is not shared fairly nor brings benefits to all, is not desirable. The Green Party will fight to stop further encroachments onto the Green Belt and to limit growth until the strain on housing, services and infrastructure is reduced to manageable levels.
