On November 12th, voters in Craigentinny/Duddingston have the chance to elect Ben Parker to Edinburgh City Council -- a Green voice calling for environmental and social justice in the City Chambers.
Since the election of Cllr Alex Staniforth for the Craigentinny/Duddingston ward in 2017, we have shown what a Green voice can do for people in the area. From pushing for more affordable housing at Meadowbank, to fighting for better and safer access to green spaces like at Holyrood Park, Alex has shown just how important it is to get Greens elected.
Across the city, our Green councillors have championed LGBT+ rights, supported the school climate strikers, prioritised homes over holiday lets, and (almost) got Donald Trump banned from the city.
Ben Parker is a dynamic voice calling for a fairer and kinder politics, and his work in our City Chambers will make lives better for people in Craigentinny/Duddingston, and across the city.
We need your help to get the Green message out to voters -- we don't take money from big business, and so rely on donations from people like you who share our vision. Please give big or small - every contribution makes a difference.
