A personal message from Nigel Bagshaw, Green candidate for Inverleith Ward.
“The elections this year have been a long time coming. I have lived in this area for 18 years. My children go to school here and, for many years, I have been an active member of the community, serving as chair of Stockbridge and Inverleith Community Council and active in campaigns to protect Inverleith Park, Glenogle Baths and local shops.
“But, as a Green candidate, I am competing with big political machines. They have ranks of press officers and funding from wealthy individuals or big organisations. I am lucky to have a great team of helpers and volunteers working with me and I believe I can compete by using every penny I have efficiently. And that is why I am launching my own appeal to raise £750 towards the £1,200 or so that I estimate my team will spend in the area – ensuring that we are able to get our message out to every household.
Please do consider supporting my campaign. You can donate by sending a cheque to “Edinburgh Green Party” to me at 5 Lennox Street, Edinburgh EH4 1QB or donate online.
