Carl ProfileCarl Benfield

We are delighted to announce that Carl Benfield has been chosen by the party as the Parliamentary Candidate for North West Leicestershire.
Carl and his family moved to Ashby following 16 years’ service in the Royal Engineers, leaving as a Major in 2007.
After 11 years working in renewable energy, Carl is now a business consultant specialising in strategic decision making for small and medium-sized enterprises.
Carl and his wife Rebecca have four sons aged 9 to 22. He is a district councillor for Ashby Castle Ward and has been involved with various environmental and community partner organisations. 

"We need to take action on curbing climate change now, and promises for plans in the distant future are simply not good enough," says Carl. "The Green party are committed to a strong, sustainable economy, where everyone has access to good quality jobs and where endless growth gives way to efficiency and productivity"
