The Green vote increased where we focussed our efforts and I'd like to thank our voters and our hard working team for this progress. We welcomed new members and hand delivered a phenominal 25,000 newspapers. It bodes well for our aim to get the first Green councillors elected to South Lanarkshire next year. Now we are on a shameless recruitment drive to bring in more activists to deliver this aim. If you like what the Greens are saying and doing locally, please join our team!
Lanarkshire branch of the Scottish Green Party launched their campaign in Hamilton Town House last week. Kirsten Robb, mother of one from East Kilbride, is the lead parliamentary candidate for the Scottish Green Party in Central region.
The Scottish Greens today announced the party's top candidates for next May's Holyrood elections across six of the eight Holyrood regions. Central region will again be contested by local Fairtrade activist Kirsten Robb. (Lanarkshire is covered by two regions, Central and South of Scotland). The party's top candidates for South will be announced in due course.
