Sian Berry - London Mayor candidate

Sian joined the Greens in 2001 and has always combined electoral politics with campaigning on issues within the community. She was the Green Party Mayoral candidate in 2008, and is looking forward to campaigning for London again this year.

Sian said, "Since the election in 2008 I’ve carried on working for the Greens, and in 2014 was elected to Camden Council. I’ve also worked non-stop as a campaigner: winning a £50 million boiler scrappage scheme from the Labour government in 2009, linking up No More Page Three with my sister’s football team for a hugely successful crowdfunder last year, running the Sack Boris campaign with unions in 2012, and helping pass new laws guaranteeing cycling and walking funding and a £500 million ‘green retrofit’ of major roads in my day job as a transport campaigner.

"I’m excited about the chance to put my knowledge and experience to work for Londoners, and to help the Greens win bigger than ever before. Starting from the brilliant third place achieved by Jenny Jones in 2012, I believe it’s not unrealistic to think we can win in 2016. Stranger things have happened in politics recently."

Tracey Hague - Croydon & Sutton London Assembly candidate 

Tracey was born in Croydon and has lived locally most of her life. She lives with her partner and two sons in Addiscombe. For the past 15 years Tracey has worked in the energy and buildings sector, including working with Sutton Council to offer energy efficiency advice. 

Tracey is an active member of the parents' association at her sons' school and the Croydon Scouts. Tracey is also an active member of the Stop The Incinerator campaign and vice-chair of the Croydon Assembly Environment Forum.

Tracey said: "I am proud to be selected as the Green Party candidate for Sutton and Croydon at next year's assembly elections. I know what life is really like for people who live in the area: trying to keep a roof over our heads, pay the bills and do the best for our families.

"London is crying out for a new kind of politics. People are fed up with our city being run for the benefit of bankers, media moguls and millionaire developers. Only the Green Party is working for the benefit of all Londoners: tackling inequality, filthy air, a struggling transport network and a broken housing system.

"At the last London elections the Green Party came third with two Green Party Assembly members elected. I will work with my fellow Green candidates and our brilliant Mayoral candidate, Sian Berry, to build on that success to establish a strong Green voice in the Assembly and give London back to Londoners."
