Newport Independents - a vote free from narrow party politics

Why you should support Newport Independents

This crowdfunder has now ended.

Campaign update: THANK YOU! To everyone who donated to our campaign, your contributions helped us win 4 seats and, provided a foundation stone for The Newport Independents, be assured, over the coming weeks, months and years we’ll be holding ‘The Cosy Club’ to account and working for the communities we love.

The time is right for a new force in local government. A force that is free from the constraints of party politics. A force that is allowed to work in the best interests of Newport and the neighbourhood communities that call this great city home.

This is what we’ve been increasingly hearing on the streets of Newport from people who are fed up of their elected representatives putting the interests of their parties first, and who are failing to represent them.

It’s time for that to stop. It’s time for real change.

The candidates of the Newport Independents Party are a diverse team from across the political spectrum and with a huge range of experience. But they all share one ambition; to hold to account the ‘Cosy Club’ at the Civic Centre and to bring our council closer to the people. We want to offer the people of Newport representation that listens to them and puts the interests of the city and its existing communities first.

It is certainly achievable. All of our candidates are truly independent. The party will never tell them what to do or how to vote on important issues that affect the city. That’s down to YOU!

Our team is passionate and driven with great ideas, and we are not afraid to shine a light onto the establishment Cosy Club that keeps telling us Newport is thriving when the evidence of our own eyes tells us a different story. Newport deserves better.

Join us on May 4th in making positive change to our proud city.

Please give a donation today -- any amount will help, from £1 to £1000!

By raising over £600, you've not only helped us lay the foundations of our campaign, but carried us right on through - together, you've helped fund the costs of billboards and leafleting across the city and getting the word out in the local press. We're on the final stretch of the campaign now, can you help us raise £1000 for the final push to the local elections on May 4th?

What do we mean by ‘independent’?

Free from any party whip, our candidates can truly represent your interests above those of most political partiesI'.

This is not true of most other political parties whose councillors and candidates have signed contracts to support their parties. They are bound by these contracts and put their parties first, above the needs of the community. Newport Independents don’t have any such contracts, and that’s what we mean by ‘independent’. We will not enter into any coalitions with other major parties, to do so would mean being influenced by their whips.

We will consider issues on a vote by vote basis guided by YOU and the communities we serve.
