Following a ballot of Green Party members in the Witham Constituency and the acceptance of the relevant paperwork by the election authorities, Cllr. James Abbott will be the Green Party candidate for Witham Constituency at the June 2017 General Election.
James Abbott has stood at every General Election in the area (the constituency has been through various name changes and boundary changes) since and including 1992 when Tony Newton was the local MP.
James has just been re-elected as the County Councillor for Witham Northern, increasing the Green vote by over 500 to hold off the "blue tide" that swept Essex on 4th May.
He is the only non-Tory county councillor in Braintree District and the mid-Essex area.

With great pleasure we announce that James Abbott, Green Party County Council Candidate for Witham Northern, defended his seat in the Elections on Thursday, 4th of May. James was able to increase his vote by over 500 and therefore left the Conservative Party Candidate in 2nd place. UKIP collapsed in Witham Northern like in the rest of the country, coming in only at 4th place, down from 2nd place in 2013.
James has done a fantastic job over the past 4 years and will certainly continue to do so in supporting the local communities where he can.
A big thank you to everybody who helped out and to everybody who voted for him. Keep yourself updated on our website on the work of James over the next 4 years.
Last but not least many congratulations to James, a hard working, sensible and approachable councillor who always has the needs and wishes of the local community in mind.
