4 May 2017 City of Edinburgh Council Elections

Sara Marsden is the Edinburgh Greens candidate for Colinton/Fairmilehead. Born in Scotland, Sara Marsden lived in places throughout the UK and in Europe, before returning to Edinburgh in 2010, where she has been active in local community groups since then. Her career spans a range of work environments including as an (HSE) occupational health and safety inspector and as a national trade union officer supporting workers and their safety representatives as well as lobbying Ministers. Sara now focuses on public health policy issues and has a particular interest in social determinants and in health inequalities. This, along with academic study and research, gives her the skills a councillor needs to effectively make a case on behalf of others.
