Elected Representatives

In the early years where and when Eco/Green candidates stood was determined by who was willing and where they happened to live, and successes were often due to purely local conditions.

You can find a summary of all elections and candidates since 1974 at each level in other articles (see list on the left) but this page just lists all the greens who were elected to local councils (District, County and Unitary).
