Liberal Democrats in Edinburgh are on the rise again and intent on winning more seats in the council elections. Liberal Democrats swept to victory in the Scottish Parliament elections in Edinburgh Western against the pundits’ predictions and people are recognising that our hard work, enthusiasm and common sense approach to politics are needed more than ever.
Underpinning all of our work is a commitment to make a real difference in the communities we represent: listening, offering feedback and keeping in touch with local people all year round and campaigning on issues which are important to the community.
We believe in people and their potential. Local decision-making and support for local people and their communities is at the heart of Liberal Democrat campaigning.
More than that, we are ambitious for Edinburgh as an outward-looking, international capital city and the engine of the Scottish economy. Following the EU Referendum, it is more important than ever that Edinburgh is a shining example of modern outward-looking internationalism and remains a fantastic diverse place to live in, visit, study in or do business in. Liberal Democrats are ambitious for our city and will work hard to enhance its reputation at home and abroad.
