Creating A Fairer Norwich

My name is Martin Schmierer and I am the leader of the Green Party group on Norwich City Council.

Martin Schmierer, Green Party candidate for Norfolk PCC

I have lived in Norfolk since 1994. I am a local councillor in Norwich for Mancroft ward which covers much of the city centre.

I am campaigning to make Norwich a fairer and cleaner city. It is unacceptable that 41% of children in my ward live in poverty.

I will continue to present a strong independent-minded voice who will put the needs of local residents first and will ensure that more is done to involve communities in dealing with the issues they face.

Green Party councillors have a history of working hard for the residents they represent. Norwich elected its first Green Party councillor in 2002 and today the Green Party is the official opposition on Norwich City Council. We currently have ten councillors while Labour have 26 and the Libdems have three. There are no Conservative or UKIP elected representatives on the local council. The Green Party also has four members on Norfolk County Council.

Please have a read of my vision for Norwich for Norwich and the latest updates about my work. Please also feel free to contact me with any questions or suggestions.
