MEET THE CANDIDATES: Shane Alexander (Green Party)
SHANE Alexander stands for the Green Party in Benwick, Coates and Eastrea Ward for a seat on Fenland District Council.
“Originally from Cumbria, I have lived in Fenland for eight years. Formerly a pub landlord in Coates, I now oversee building projects for Cambridge Colleges.
“Disappointed at not being able to vote green in the last election, I became a member of the Green Party to allow others in Fenland the opportunity to vote green.
“I have an interest in human rights, economic policy, non-privatisation of the NHS and nuclear alternatives.
“If elected, I would campaign against any privatisations, especially the NHS, and campaign for improved cycle paths across Fenland.
