Today the Green Party has announced that Jonathan Hornett has been selected to be their prospective parliamentary candidate for the forthcoming Corby and East Northants by-election.
In a recent ballot of county members, Mr Hornett received overwhelming support.
Mr Hornett has lived in Wellingborough for 10 years and runs his own gardening company working throughout East Northamptonshire. He is married with two children and has been a member of the Green Party for over 10 years. He stood in the 2010 General Election for the Wellingborough constituency and has stood in all recent local elections.
Mr Hornett said: “I’m standing to give the people of Corby and East Northamptonshire the opportunity to choose a positive candidate.
“The Green Party is the only alternative to cuts, climate change and social injustice. Locally we want more wind farms and public services; and no more housing developments, roads, warehouses or nuclear waste. I am standing to make Corby and East Northants fairer, safer, cleaner and greener – I want to represent you.”
