blake roberts

colchester & district green party co-ordinator

In September 2019, Blake Roberts became the new Coordinator of Colchester & District Green Party. By day, Blake works in publishing where he is the deputy editor of a national gardening magazine. He has been a Green Party member since before the 2015 General Election. 

In the four years he has been active in the Green Party, he has held a variety of positions, including Communications Officer for the Colchester branch of the party, the Prospective Parliamentary Candidate in the 2017 General Election for Harwich & North Essex, Campaigns Officer in the year leading up to Colchester Greens’ breakthrough onto Colchester Borough Council, and the Young Greens Elections Officer where he helped to elect a record seven new Young Green councillors to councils from Brighton to Norwich. 

In his term as coordinator, he wants to build on the recent breakthrough by electing even more Greens at every level of government, spread the Green message of social and environmental justice to even more people, and professionalise the internal workings of the local party as it continues to grow and see further successes.
