The Green Party has selected its candidate for the by-election for the Wharfedale ward on Bradford Council next month.
Janet Souyave is a retired doctor and has lived in Burley-in-Wharfedale for about 30 years.
Janet now volunteers with charities including Barnardo’s, Craven Citizens Advice Bureau, the Sun Lane Nature reserve and environmental groups.
She achieved 15 per cent of the vote in the ward at the last local election.
“I am delighted to be contesting this by-election for the Green Party,” she said.
“I am committed to Green policies as the way to make our neighbourhoods more sustainable, not just for ourselves but for our grandchildren and their children.
“I will continue to fight against spending cuts that attack the most vulnerable in society, when these were the people furthest away from the cause of the financial crisis.”
The by-election takes place on Thursday, November 15, following the resignation of Matt Palmer.
