About Jessika Hulbert – candidate for Withyham ward

Dear Resident,

My name is Jessika Hulbert. I’m standing in the upcoming election to represent Withyham ward on Wealden District Council and am writing to ask for your support on Thursday 4 May.

Here are some reasons why you may consider voting for me:

The kind of councillor I will be

As a wedding and funeral celebrant, I know the importance of really listening to people. I’ll take time to hear what local people want from their council – and will work hard to serve you.

I’m persistent and determined and keep going till I’ve found an answer.

I care about our community

I grew up locally and brought up my family here. Working for many years in the local GP practice brought me even closer to the lives of people living in Withyham. This beautiful place matters deeply to me. I would like to be able to support our brilliant young people, and improve opportunities for them locally, and to find out what they need more of in our rural areas.

I want better from Wealden.

I’ll stand up for our countryside and environment

Residents have been telling me how worried they are about housing developments that threaten our beautiful countryside and don’t provide the houses that local people need. I’ll work for every development to be part of its community, with sewage, water, doctors and schools, transport and green space central to the plans. I care about our environment and the nature in it that we love, including wildlife; looking after the bees and insects to ensure pollination and reducing the food waste that goes to landfill are all areas that need championing.

I’ll push hard for housing that is good for local people and our environment.

I’ll be an independent voice for Withyham ward

I’ll stand up for the residents of Withyham Ward, making sure your voices are heard in the Council. Other parties vote in a block - I’ll never be forced to vote on party lines because Green councillors speak for the people they represent. Effective communication is vital if we are to find ways to improve outcomes for local people, and I will do my best to find a way to do just that.

I’ll always speak up for you.

Cllr Keith Obbard has been a wonderful Green District Councillor for Withyham and I’m proud to have been selected to stand for election here. I hope you will put your trust in me in the elections on Thursday 4 May. I won’t let you down.

Best wishes,


PS: Don’t forget, your vote really counts in Withyham – if you want a Green Councillor again, please support me. Greens can  win again in Withyham ward! Thank you.
