This is our biggest ever Council campaign, aiming to make a positive difference in more Council Chambers across Scotland.

More voters than ever will have the chance to elect Green Councillors, with over 200 candidates due to contest May’s Council elections, more than double the 80 who stood for the party in 2012.

The Greens are looking to build on existing councillor numbers in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeenshire, Midlothian and Stirling, and are confident of electing the party’s first councillors in many of Scotland’s remaining 27 local authorities.

Greens will always work to put people and communities first. Green councillors across Scotland have fought for jobs, investment in schools, safe roads, green spaces and community say over decisions:

Musselburgh, meet your Green candidate

Jason Rose Mon 20 Mar

Why are you standing to become an East Lothian councillor?

I feel I can make a difference, and get a better deal for Musselburgh. Too often we’re overlooked or not listened to, and it’s time East Lothian Council had a fresh voice for Musselburgh getting issues such as housing, public health and our environment higher up the agenda.
