WITH a General Election a certainty within the next few months, St Albans Green Party has unveiled its prospective parliamentary candidate.

He is Jack Easton who has lived in St Albans with his wife and family of three girls for 10 years. He works for a firm of accountants in London and is a governor at Loreto College in Hatfield Road, St Albans.

He has become a key member of the local Green Party which polled more votes than Labour across the district at last year's county council elections.

He is also involved in the recently-formed Transition Towns group in the city which aims to make St Albans more sustainable in the face of climate change and the move away from oil dependency.

Mr Easton said: "A modern city puts sustainability at the heart of its policies. St Albans needs to go green for the good of us all and I want to help.
