It has never been more important to put power in your hands. This election brings huge opportunities and huge challenges. The Councillors elected in 2017 will be faced with the challenge of meeting the demands of a hugely energised democracy in Scotland.

Greens are committed to meeting that challenge by placing power in your hands, by providing the money that councils need to run their services, and by making sure that you, as a citizen and as a community, have the opportunity to play a greater role in the decisions that matter to your life.

Last week highlighted the latest in a raft of concerns caused by inconsiderate driving and parking in Kirkcaldy, this time at Torbain Primary School, where residents are so concerned about the safety of pupils that they are proposing closing the road to cars at drop-off and collection times. If elected, I would make addressing this issue a top priority. 

You can put councillors in place who will prioritise local needs

John Finnie MSP Fri 28 Apr

They say travel broadens the mind. And we could do with some broader thinking at this time. A narrow-minded Tory Prime Minister has called a General Election right in the middle of a vital local election campaign. That tells you all you need to know about how little the Tories value local council services.
