It was standing room only at the Stroud Brewery in Brimscombe on Tuesday as we invited press and public to the launch of their General Election 2019 campaign.
Molly Scott Cato, Stroud Green Party and Unite to Remain candidate for Stroud said:
“I’m delighted by the response we are getting on the doorsteps with many people keen to vote Green. In such a strongly pro-European area, the appeal of our Remain position and the more cooperative approach to politics of Unite to Remain is proving very popular. Stroud has a huge reputation for being a global Green community and for being pioneering and brave. I believe we will prove this once again by electing the country’s second Green MP on 12th December.”
Joining Molly was Greg Pilley, Managing Director of Stroud Brewery and Caroline Lucas, Green Party MP for Brighton Pavilion. Caroline said:
“I can’t wait to have Molly Scott Cato working with me at Westminster. She has been a great MEP, working tirelessly to oppose Brexit. As an economist, Molly has the skills and expertise we need to take urgent action on the climate emergency and make the Green New Deal a success”
Molly Scott Cato is the Remain candidate for the Stroud Constituency, after the Liberal Democrat candidate George James stood aside. Both parties received a combined 21,000 votes – half the vote share during the European elections in May 2019.
