Leith Walk by-election

Lorna Slater
A by-election in the Leith Walk ward will be held on 11 April 2019.  The Greens have selected local resident, renewable energy engineer Lorna Slater.

Greens in Edinburgh have announced their candidate, Lorna Slater, for the Leith Walk council by-election on 11 April, saying that voters face a straight choice between a Green councillor who will stand up for the area versus SNP-Labour candidates who will be forced to toe the council line.
