“We need a fresh start after the major debacles and the “we know best” culture of the last 5 years. Of course, I want to see a greener Edinburgh with warmer homes and cleaner, safer streets, but I also want to see a fairer city and a more open council that really listens to people. Greens will work for a fairer council where we pay a living wage to workers and generate more jobs and training for young people.
“We’ll only succeed in making the city fit for the future if we involve communities in decisions, which is why Greens will make the council more open and better at listening to local people. Greener, fairer and more open: that’s what Green councillors promise the people of Edinburgh. This election is not tied to national election and big-party politics, and we hope people will seize the opportunity to vote for strong local candidates and a vision for the city they really want.”
