Green councillors and MSPs have a long history of fighting for decent public transport for all, from the Better Buses campaign in Glasgow, to campaigning against axing rural routes in Dumfries and Galloway.

With coal trucks no longer rolling towards Longannet we have the opportunity to reopen the Dunfermline to Alloa line and create a rail link all the way to Glasgow.

Green MSP for Mid Scotland and Fife Mark Ruskell is convening a forum of rail campaigns from across Fife to help the projects move forward, and Green
councillors in Fife House will be a strong advocate of new rail routes and better bus services.

How you can help us elect more Green councillors than ever before on 4th May

Yvonne Mclellan Thu 23 Mar


At our Spring conference we heard about the hard work of our current Green councillors and their successes as well as learning more about some of our fantastic candidates and why they are standing for local council.

We are standing more candidates than ever before but we can’t elect them without help from people like you.

Here are just some of the ways you can get involved:

Use your vote

Andy Collins Wed 22 Mar

The council election on 4th May will use the single transferable vote system (STV).

The counting is, admittedly, complex but the voting is not, all you have to do is simply rank candidates in the order you would prefer them to be elected.

We are asking you to please give the Green candidate your fi rst preference vote, but it is important to rank as many candidates as you can.

Remember that giving a later rank (higher number) to a candidate has no effect on the whether your earlier choices are elected or not.
