Scottish Greens ask voters to Think Global Act Local

Voters are being asked to ‘Think Global, Act Local’ by giving the Scottish Greens their first preference vote in May’s local authority elections.

The Scottish Greens launched their local election campaign today in Linlithgow, the first election the Greens are contesting as a party of government.

Speaking afterwards, co-leader Patrick Harvie said:

“Concern about the climate crisis and the need for a just transition has never been higher, and the local elections in May can play an important part in Scotland’s response. That’s because the wellbeing of our citizens is at the heart of a green recovery, and that recovery starts in our communities.

“That’s why these elections are so vitally important. We have Greens in national government delivering free bus travel for young people, record investment in active travel, nature recovery and recycling, the biggest teacher recruitment drive since 2007 and so much more.

“Now we need more greens elected to councils to carry this work on in our communities, but that will only happen if voters Think Global, Act Local and give the Scottish Greens their first preference vote.”
