Meet the Green Council Candidates
For Brentford and Syon Wards
John Bradley – Brentford
Aged 58 John has lived in Brentford for 27 years. He spent thirty years in the construction and building maintenance industry as a Commercial Manager until being made redundant at which point he decided to go back to university and gained a BA and MA in Classics at the University of London.
John has played an active role in Brentford for many years standing in every local election since 1990 except the year that the Brentford FC football supporters stood as the ABC party. He also been a candidate in parliamentary elections in 1992 and 1997 and for the European parliament in 1994.
Tony Firkins - Syon
Tony Firkins has lived in the Syon ward for over 30 years. He works for a mobile phone network operator, specializing in the overall reliability of the service and the IT systems that make it all work. His major environmental interest is in climate change and the policy required to address this.
He believes in the maxim of "Think global, act local" which has lead him to be active in local campaigns against Heathrow expansion and addressing air pollution. As a keen cyclist and walker, he wishes to see a Hounslow less dominated by the car and a much greener Hounslow.
