By-election nearby

Stephanie Murray
The neighbouring ward, Liberton/Gilmerton, has a by-election on Thursday 20th June.

It follows the sad death last month of Tom Buchanan who was the SNP Councillor.

Standing for the SNP to replace him is Derek Howie.

Labour is putting up Keith Robson.

I understand the LibDems have John Knox as candidate.

The Greens have Alys Mumford up.

And we Conservatives have Stephanie Murray.  Stephanie also stood in a by-election in 2010 when she increased the Conservative share of the first preference vote. Stephanie was born and raised in the ward and works for KPMG in tax.   One to watch.
