Elaine Ford is the May 2022 Council candidate for the Craigentinny & Duddingston ward in Edinburgh, which includes the communites of Seafield, Lochend, Craigentinny, Meadowbank, Duddingston, Restalrig and Jock's Lodge. In 2020, Elaine doubled the Lib Dem vote in the Craigentinny / Duddingston by-election.
Elaine is fighting to;
- Improve the poor state of our roads and pavements which in addition to being an eyesore, can be dangerous for all road users and pedestrians;
- Stop cuts to council funding for crucial services such as community policing;
- Stop the danger posed by speeding traffic and rat runs especially in Marionville;
- Re-instate the 69 bus; a vital service that our elderly and less able residents depend on; leaving many feeling isolated which was exacerbated through lockdown;
- Get better walking and cycling facilities into town.
