Council elections are coming up next year and, in the run up to such elections, it is time to take stock of what we want in a local government. We have to look over the preceding period and evaluate if we are happy with the incumbent administration and decide whether or not we can trust them with our vote for another 4 years.
As proud residents of Edinburgh, we have to ask ourselves a very important question. Are we pleased with SNP led administration’s stewardship of our city? Are we satisfied that they are the best option to lead us?
Are we happy with a social housing system that the charity Shelter called “Broken and Biased” and in which the average wait time for social housing in Edinburgh for a single person?
Are we happy to live in a city with the kind chaos on the roads that we are seeing as a result of the crazy “Spaces for People” initiative? Traffic, diversions, and less access to parking for people who are less mobile in the city centre.
I would argue that we as proud citizens of Edinburgh deserve better than this and it is time to decide whether we want to remain with the same tired and failing administration or look to something better. We have tried SNP way; it is time to try the Conservative way. The Edinburgh Conservatives stand ready to provide a fresh and effective alternative at the upcoming election.
