Rick Page Confirmed as New Parliamentary Candidate for Salisbury Green Party

5 November 2019

We are delighted to announce that Rick Page is the newly selected parliamentary candidate to stand for the Green Party in the Salisbury constituency. Thank you to everyone who voted in our selection process.

Rick lives in central Salisbury and is a long serving head teacher of a large inner city primary school in Southampton. Previously he lived in Winterslow where he was Chair of Governors at the local school for many years.

Rick has also served on the elected council of Liberty, an NGO that works to protect civil liberties and promote human rights and as a board member of the Society of St James, the homeless charity based in Southampton and Hampshire. Prior to retraining and a career in education he was a partner in a Salisbury based business.

Rick is not a career politician, but from his experiences of working both in business and education, feels strongly that as a society we need to develop a system based on cooperation, democracy and social justice and to not risk the planet’s future with environmental destruction and unsustainable consumption. That we need to accept the truth about climate change and act now on the climate emergency as individuals and as communities but also to demand of government urgent structural changes to the way we organise our society to combat climate change and so safeguard the world for our children and future generations.

In recent months Rick has been invited to address both the Students Climate Strike in June and the Students and General Climate Strike in September along with the recent Salisbury For Europe rally.
