Are you passionate about your local community and ever thought about running for the local council elections in 2017? We’d love to hear from YOU!
Following our biggest campaign to date, Holyrood 2016, we’ve developed new campaigning skills and keen to put them to good use in supporting candidates in next years local elections.
A complete list of wards in our area under current proposals can be found here:
If you would like to put yourself forward for selection please let us know by Friday 31st July so that we can email all members advising them of their choice of candidates in advance of our selection meetings. Please state which Ward you wish to stand in and give us a few sentences telling us why you would like to stand for the Greens in that area.
All potential candidates should send their responses and any questions you may have to: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you’re still unsure and would like more information on what it’s like being a councillor, check out this excellent new resource that gives you a flavour of what it’s like and some other useful information: http://www.localcouncillor.scot/ and the branch will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
Nominations close: 31st July
Selection meetings: Late August / Early September
