Adam Van Coevorden - Green Candidate for Up Hatherley

adam van coevordenBorn and bred in Cheltenham, I am a 32-year-old father of two and have lived in Hatherley and Warden Hill most of my life. I attended Pate’s Grammar school, before studying politics at the University of York and now work for HESA on the Promenade. In my day job I am involved in supporting and training individuals and large groups, drawing on my strong communication skills combined with a good dose of empathy and humility. Outside of work, I enjoy watching Cheltenham Town, playing amateur football and competing in pub quizzes. 

I stood in the 2015 general election in Cheltenham as I genuinely believe that the Green Party stands for fairness and equality, rather than for greed and power at all costs. I was pleased to get  2,500 votes and save my deposit. The Greens have proven to be a powerful voice for ordinary people on a local level, fighting for green spaces, clean air and putting people before profit.,  

A vote for the Greens is a vote to reject the business as usual of the political classes. It is a vote to fight for the interests of people and the planet, rather than short term political interest.
