Carla is co-leader of the Green Party of England and Wales, elected along with Adrian Ramsay in October 2021.
She is also the Green Party’s MP candidate for Bristol West. In the 2019 General Election she came second, nearly doubling the Greens’ previous vote share and securing the highest number of votes that the Green Party has ever received in a General Election outside of Brighton Pavilion (Caroline Lucas’ seat).
Carla has been a Bristol City Councillor since 2015, forming a critical part of the largest Green councillor group in the UK, which saw unprecedented success at the May local elections in 2021.
In 2018 she proposed the first Climate Emergency declaration in Europe, committing Bristol to go carbon neutral by 2030. 74% of UK councils, the UK Parliament and Scottish and Welsh governments have since followed her lead.
She has also served as the Green Party’s Housing and Communities spokesperson, and has a track record of standing up for renters and working to prevent homelessness.
Before entering politics, Carla worked as an engineer in the renewable energy industry, specialising in offshore and onshore wind energy.
