Salford has a 25% chance of landing the Green Party candidate in next year's election for Greater Manchester Mayor, after Emma Van Dyke was selected as one of four nominations for the Party.

Emma stood for the Greens in the 2015 General Election to be Salford and Eccles MP, and has also stood in Ordsall in the local elections.

The ten area Green Parties will now choose between the four candidates who are...

Emma Van Dyke, who became a disability rights campaigner because she disagreed with benefit cuts... "I joined the Greens to help build a better future, with joined-up policies for the good of the people and the environment."

Adam King, a research scientist from Oldham, who `wants to tell everybody about the fresh thinking in new Green policies'.

Deyika Nzeribe, from Manchester, who `is passionate to represent all communities, including any that have been overlooked...He is also keen to hold councils to account if they need it'.

Will Patterson, from Wigan, who works in Manchester City Centre... `He has been working hard for the Green Party on the issue of local democracy for the last two years. He's also been delighted to support Wigan's young people as they held the town's first Pride event.'

Brian Candeland, North West Green Party Chair, said: "We are pleased that Green Party members have a choice of four excellent and very diverse candidates. Even better, all four will work as a team to support whichever one is selected as actual Green Party Mayoral Candidate for May 2017.

"Other parties have more resources, but the Green Party believes their grassroots support will raise their profile in the election campaigns" he added "A Green Mayor could bring fresh hope and a new vision, and bring everybody together to make our region even better."

Good for the Greens! Democracy is about choice, Mr Felse. But you think that democracy is not something that the electorate of Salford should have. It's not up to you, Mr Felse.

Great pity to see the Greens not realise they risk splitting the anti Labour vote during the 2017 Labour Civil War year. Only UKIP is able to ditch Labour based on 2015-16 collective voting results in Greater Manchester and Salford. I will continue fighting to ditch a rotten Labour Party that is riddled with left wing extremists that do not care about Salford or about the excellent opportunities for new jobs, 140,000 social homes, billions of new income that will make Greater Manchester and Salford flourish and building more equality. The only issue I disagree with is the growing support for sane sex marriage as I favour Civil Partnrtships for same sex couples. But that aside I demand the Greens and non Labour groups rethink the best strategy to rid us of the Labour hopeful that will infest us with Westminster attitudes. Labour will stick us on a road to nowhere and drive us back 50 years. Felse.

COUNCIL UPS PRICE OF BUILE HILL MANSION PROJECT TO OVER 20MILLION AS PLANS MET WITH SCORN FROM COMMUNITY

Last night, a packed stormy meeting of the Claremont and Weaste Community Committee left Salford City Council in no doubt that any plans to build houses in Buile Hill Park as part of a deal to restore the Grade 2 listed Mansion will be met with fierce opposition.

Salford Council's Assistant Director of the Environment revealed to the meeting that Salford Red Devils Foundation, one of the driving partners of the project, hadn't even signed the controversial Memorandum of Understanding yet and that the 1.6million cost of restoring the Mansion would have to be met with 1million a year to sustain it, giving a figure of over 20million.
