Martin Schmierer - City Councillor for Mancroft Ward

Martin Schmierer is currently the Green Party councillor for Mancroft on the City Council and is hoping to be elected to Norfolk County Council as well. He grew up in Norwich and returned to the city in 2014. In his free time, Martin enjoys going to the cinema, cooking and is an avid Norwich City fan.

Since being elected in 2015, Martin has been campaigning for a variety of issues, such as: More measures to make our streets safer by increasing traffic calming measures, especially around schools; more action on anti-social behaviour and drug dealing; a greater emphasis on promoting small local and independent businesses in Norwich.

Martin said: “Over the last two years, it has been a pleasure to meet the area's residents and shop-owners and I look forward to meeting many more in the coming months. While the area I represent is home to many of landmarks and institutions that make Norwich a fine city, it is clear that we need to do more to improve the city centre. If elected I will carry on the good work of other Green Party councillors in promoting public transport, tackling poverty and supporting small local businesses, which will ensure fairer and more sustainable society here in Norwich.”

"The Greens have a strong record of protecting the most vulnerable in our communities and I will work hard to promote our vision for a fairer and more sustainable society here in Norwich."
