This weeks member to be featured is Morgan Tatchell-Evans, 2014's local candidate for the Kirkstall ward, alongside being the front man for Buen Chico, one of many musical projects he involved in. Check out his interview with the Guardian here and the bands myspace here. Next week someone else will be featured.
Why did you join the Green Party & how long have you been a member?
I joined the Green Party mainly because they’re the only major party with sensible environmental policies, although I found on closer inspection that I agreed pretty well with the whole manifesto. I’ve been a member since 2010.
What do you do as a member of the Green Party?
I am the president of the Leeds University Green Party Society, which takes up most of my green time. We run campaigns on campus, try to get students to vote and organise socials. I also sometimes get involved in leafleting for election campaigns, running stalls at various events etc.
What do you outside of the Green Party?
I’m a PhD student in the Mechanical Engineering school at Leeds University, and I play in a few bands.
Have you been in another political party before joining?
