Hutchison and Chesser Community Council on Monday night; Tollcross Community Council Tuesday night ... Merchiston next week and Craiglockhart the week after.
These new multi-member wards have definitely led to elected Members losing touch with their communities and not being reactive to local events ... NOT, of course.
All the doom-mongers, who were certain that the mythical Member-Ward would be broken and local politics would collapse, do need to reflect on their predictions.
I've never seen so many elected Members at Community Council meetings; with healthy competition between them; and good, constructive engagement with the actual Community Council members themselves.
Okay - my Ward is obviously bigger, and I'm noticeably busier at a local level ... but isn't that a good thing?
Mind you, maybe that's exactly what the cynics were afraid of?
