Just one week to go until our 2021 Scottish Parliament elections hustings. Starting at 7pm next Monday the 12th April, we have representatives from each of the main political parties attending. Register here for the event and receive instructions on how to join.
Representatives of the various political parties will present their policies for improving provision for wheeling, walking and cycling in Scotland. GoBike will be asking the candidates questions based on the Walk, Wheel, Cycle, Vote pledges. There will then be an opportunity for you to ask questions on how the candidates can make a positive impact on active travel with in the Glasgow Metropolitan area.
The candidates from the five major political parties that will be attending are:
Patrick Harvie – Scottish Green Party
Alex Rowley – Scottish Labour Party
Graham Simpson – Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party
Kaukab Stewart – Scottish National Party
David McKenzie – Scottish Liberal Democrats
During this week we hope to post a blog post from each of the candidates, outlining their parties policies on Active Travel.
On Friday the National Consultation Digest will include a summary of all the active travel policies from each of the parties manifestos.
If you haven’t already done so please sign up here (link) for free to receive instructions on how to join us. The hustings is open to all with an interest in active travel, so we hope as many of our members and friends can attend.
Our hustings will run under the Wheel, Walk, Cycle Vote banner where we will focus our questions around their three pledges on accessibility, infrastructure and investment.
