Cato Sandford

Candidate for St Martin's

Cato Sandford, Green Party candidate for St Martin's ward, holds a PhD in physics and currently works on sustainability issues in transport policy -- including, for those who are interested, mitigation of negative impacts from first-generation biofuels, incentives for low-carbon technology transitions and electrification, design of carbon markets, monitoring the deployment of fuel technologies and sourcing of feedstocks, and understanding the socio-economic impacts of air pollution and vehicle replacement schemes.

Though relative newcomer to local politics, Cato has a keen focus on creating innovative yet robust initiatives, which are aligned to the concerns of local stakeholders and harmonised with existing programmes for maximum reach.

He expects political representatives to be responsive, compassionate, transparent, and available -- and crucially, to work collaboratively on tricky issues, as no one person can possibly have all the answers!
