There are many ways we do so. Teams are out every day knocking on doors in different wards of the city, finding out people's concerns and explaining Labour's plans. We are also delivering leaflets to as many homes as possible, detailing local candidates and highlighting key elements of our plans for the city.
We're active online too - here on this website we publish full candidate details, campaigning dates, news stories and, of course, the full manifesto on which we are fighting the election. And we have very active Facebook and Twitter engagement, with Edinburgh Labour folk always ready to discuss the latest developments.
Candidates also regularly organise and attend political events, like our Co-operative Council meeting last month, alongside fundraisers and drop-in campaign days. And across the city different community and special interest groups have been organising hustings, to which candidates from all parties are invited, and people have the opportunity to quiz them on their plans.
Hustings are a great way to engage with the political debate. Local news site the Edinburgh Reporter maintains a useful list of upcoming hustings and there are three coming up over the next two days alone:
- UNISON Hustings (city-wide event) will be held at 6pm - 8pm on Thursday 26th April in the Augustine Church, George IV Bridge, Edinburgh.
- The local Forth Ward Hustings will be at Royston Wardieburn Community Centre on Thursday 26th April from 6 - 8.30pm.
- The Edinburgh Student Forum's Edinburgh Council election hustings (also city-wide) is on Friday 27th April at 5.30pm at Edinburgh University Students' Association, Bristo Square.
