Make Councils Work For You

Liberal Democrats councillors have a powerful track record of delivering for local communities across Scotland. They are local champions. They work all year round, not just at election time.

Scottish Liberal Democrat councillors will put their local area first, not another divisive independence referendum. That is my message as I launch our party’s local council election campaign in Fife today.

Unlike the SNP and the Greens we will put local communities first, not another divisive independence referendum. With Liberal Democrats you get a champion for your area not a cheerleader for independence.

We are pro-UK, pro-EU and progressive.

Our plan for a strong economy and a fair society contrasts with the reckless hard-Brexit of the Conservatives and the divisive approach of the nationalists.

At a local level, Liberal Democrat plans will mean a transformational investment in nurseries and schools, a step change in mental health services and the scrapping of the unfair council tax.

We are contesting more wards than five years ago, and are looking to win more seats.

The campaign this May builds on the party’s record-breaking wins in council by-elections across the country since the last general election, gaining more than 30 seats across the UK, including from the SNP in Scotland.
