The North Devon Green Party has selected Robbie Mack to be its new prospective parliamentary candidate.
Robbie Mack was selected from a choice of 4 local candidates and replaces Ricky Knight, who has withdrawn from the role to be able to spend more time with his family.
Robbie, according to the party in their official Facebook page, made the following statement: “I am thrilled to have been selected by my fellow members. It will not be an easy job but consecutive Governments have failed North Devon. In politics, you can’t offer many guarantees, but I can offer one at least: if elected, I will work tirelessly for the people of North Devon, to improve their lives and for all of our futures.”
Robbie himself took to his Facebook page to reiterate his support and commitment towards the party and the people of North Devon. He also admitted that Ricky Knight’s ‘tireless campaigning’ was a major inspiration for him.
Ricky believed that Robbie’s drive and dedication will be invaluable to the party and to the people of North Devon.
Jonathan Bartley, co-leader of the Green Party of England and Wales, has also pledged his support for Robbie as the candidate for North Devon and has highlighted the importance of getting Greens elected at parliamentary level and to local councils.
Robbie, who attended Park School in Barnstaple, and trained as a chef, is a committed community activist.
