The local branch of the Green Party has selected Louth woman Romy Rayner as their candidate to fight the Louth and Horncastle seat at next year’s general election.

Ms Rayner, 30, was selected at a local branch meeting earlier this month, where party members voted unanimously in favour 
of accepting her as the candidate.

In terms of central policy, Ms Rayner believes in saving the NHS, 
re-nationalising the railways and increasing the minimum wage to a living 
wage of £10 per hour for everyone.

More locally, Ms Rayner believes that improving public transport in our rural constituency is of paramount 
importance.

On the subject of the controversial sale of the Louth Cattle Market, Ms Rayner adds: “I have for many months been saying we 
should have held a town referendum.

“In my mind it’s the only democratic solution to an issue which has divided our community.”

Ms Rayner is expected to be formally adopted as 
the Green Party’s local candidate following 
their AGM on December 11.
