I clearly hope residents cast their vote according to local issues and really do consider whether the last 5-years of SNP/Lib-Dem control in Edinburgh have been a success, and if they want more of the same? Or, is it time for a change?
I know the answer I'd prefer ;-)
... and I hope Edinburgh Labour have demonstrated over recent years that we have tried to listen carefully to the views of local residents; especially in the way we've gone about constructing our local manifesto, a short summary of which is up on the main Edinburgh Labour website this morning.
For me - it really is time for a fresh start, with a co-operative council listening to local people and working together with local communities. A council where fairness, accountability and responsibility really matter. That's the core message in our offer to Edinburgh ... it will run through everything we do in the next 5-years.
But, however you vote (and I hope you do vote!), do please take some time to read the various Parties' manifesto proposals before Thursday.
