7 November 2010
I'd like to start by thanking the organizers, and the Scottish Green Party, for such a warm welcome.
I'm very grateful for this opportunity to salute the fantastic work you are all doing to foster local parties and build grassroots support.
Building on what you have achieved already as the Scottish Green Party.
The first Green councillors elected here in Edinburgh and in Glasgow, joined by new colleagues in Aberdeenshire – congratulations.
And I'm sure we can look forward to many more taking seats in the 2012 council elections.
