Sian Berry, Caroline Russell and ZackPolanski at Tower BridgeThere are three Green Assembly Members in City Hall – Sian Berry, Zack Polanski and Caroline Russell.

Sian and Caroline were elected in May 2016, taking over from Darren Johnson and Jenny Jones who had both represented Londoners on the Assembly since the very first elections in 2000. In 2021, a record Green vote also elected Zack Polanski as our newest Green AM to join the team.
