ASPIRING politician Amy Mack is joining old hands as a candidate for the Green Party at May’s Sheffield Council elections.

The recent Sheffield University graduate is standing in Crookes, while former Central ward councillor and Sheffield party chairman Bernard Little is standing in Broomhill, where he lives.

Mr Little will stand against Liberal Democrat Coun Paul Scriven, the former Sheffield Council leader who holds the seat.

Coun Rob Murphy is defending his Central ward seat against what is likely to be a tough challenge from Labour.

Amy said: “I am committed to working with Rob and Bernard in wards with a high student population to ensure their voice is heard and to help interaction with longer-term residents.

“Students and young people are under-represented on Sheffield Council.”
