Frank Adlington-Stringer

The Green Party has selected Frank Adlington-Stringer as its candidate for the East Midlands mayoral election. The election will take place in May 2024, and will be the first time election to the newly created post.

Adlington-Stringer is a councillor in North East Derbyshire, becoming the first Green to ever be elected to that council in 2023. He was born in Chesterfield and raised in Derby.

Speaking on his selection, Adlington-Stringer said that he wanted to put forward a plan for a ‘Green Industrial Revolution’ in the East Midlands. He said: “It is the greatest honour to have the opportunity to repair our region which has for too long been ignored. The East Midlands is full of potential which is waiting to be unleashed by a strong independent voice.

“Through a Green Industrial Revolution we will proudly and sustainably revive British manufacturing. By providing future-ready training to job seekers, our local economies will stand out as powerhouses in a changing market.

“My plan to create an unrivalled public transport network will allow local people to travel across the East Midlands with integrated and affordable ticketing.

“This is just the beginning. I cannot wait to share my full plan with you as I spend the next few months speaking to as many of you as possible.

“Thank you to everyone – friends, family and voters – who have made this a reality for our region. Together, we will bring prosperity back to the East Midlands.”

Adlington-Stringer’s candidacy has been welcomed by the Green Party’s deputy leader Zack Polanski. He said: “I’m delighted to see Frank has been selected to be the candidate for Mayor. I’ve seen how much Frank cares about the community and will be a vibrant and exciting Mayor that will always have people and planet at the heart of everything he does – he’d be a very wise choice for Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire”.
