Prospective MP - Mark Stevenson

I AM 56 and an organic market gardener in Warborough. I have two daughters.

I AM 56 and an organic market gardener in Warborough. I have two daughters.

I was previously head of maths at Milham Ford School in Oxford and have been a school governor.

I am a parish councillor in Dorchester-on-Thames and chairman of Dorchester’s neighbourhood development plan steering group and have worked on a variety of local environmental projects.

I advise South Oxfordshire Sustainability on food and planning issues and have helped start several local farmers’ markets.

I am standing because our Government has lacked vision and moral responsibility. We need MPs with their feet on the ground but inspired by a willingness to work for the common good.



We need a government that invests our taxes in social goods, such as the NHS, care services and education, not in nuclear weapons and arms trade. We need a government that applies and collects taxes fairly. We need a government that influences the world for good, working effectively within the EU and UN. We need a government that values every member of society and seeks to ensure no one is left out or marginalised. A genuine living wage, with less gap between the highest and lowest earners, will boost productivity and prosperity for us all.

We need a government that will properly fund research in science and technology, not leave it to the vested interests of commercial companies. We need a government that will do all this in the context of reducing carbon emissions and minimising the harm of climate change.
