General Election 2019

Tom Pashby is the Green Party's South West Hertfordshire Parliamentary Candidate for the General Election on 12th December 2019.

Tom grew up in Croxley Green and went to Rickmansworth school. Tom studied environmental science at university and has since worked and volunteered in sustainable energy and climate-focused policy and communications.

In the 2018 local elections, with Three Rivers Green Party having previously not stood a candidate, Tom came second out of five candidates, thanks to a successful campaign in Rickmansworth Town. Campaigning included speaking to residents, finding out what was important to them and acting on it. Actions included getting a speed sensor installed on a dangerous stretch of road, delivering emissions reductions and improved road safety.

Tom said: “The Greens are the only party committed to realistic action on the climate emergency, for a People’s Vote, to campaign for remain, and to heal the wounds from a decade of austerity. Vote Green for a more prosperous future.

“We recognise that infinite economic growth is impossible on a finite planet. Continued support by the other parties for neoliberalism will delivery misery for the many and the sixth mass extinction.

“Remaining as members of the European Union will make the transition to a zero-carbon, prosperous society more achievable. Cross border cooperation is needed now more than ever, but it is important that I and others hoping to stop Brexit seek a democratic mandate in a Peoples’ Vote.”

"I grew up in Croxley Green and went to Rickmansworth school. I want to represent my area and bring green values to the local council. I am passionate about the environment and equality and in particular, I will be campaigning for clean air, affordable housing and safer roads for everyone.

If elected I would like to live in the ward and fulfil my duties as a councillor whilst continuing to commute to London to for my job in communications at EIT Climate-KIC.

I have already started work on supporting residents and putting pressure on the council. We secured a new speed sign on a dangerous road following our petition and we have got the council to start testing air quality in a previously untested area."


General Election 2017

Paul de Hoest was the Green Party's South West Hertfordshire Parliamentary Candidate for the General Election on 8th June 2017.

Paul is local and experienced

Paul de Hoest has lived within the constituency for over 20 years. He and his wife have raised three children in the area. Paul has been a regular commuter into London working in the finance and public sectors.

The Green Party is Growing
Only the Green Party and the Conservatives increased their number of councillors in the local elections on May 4th 2017.

"I want passionately to do everything I can to preserve our natural habitat for future generations, reintroduce the humanity into our economics and restore a compassionate attitude towards others. I believe in a democratic political process and will fight to reform our democracy. The national priorities are to ensure that we take urgent action on the climate and environment whilst fixing the broken, unequal, economic system.  The final decision on Brexit must lie with the people, not the Prime Minister. In South West Herts we need: greener and cheaper public transport (including bringing railways back into common ownership and restoring adequate local bus routes); investment in our youth by restoring adequate resourcing in our schools; restoration of the NHS – reversing privatisation and improving wider social/community care services; revitalisation of local democracy and economies." - Paul de Hoest
