Spokes Lothian election hustings

Speakers
Green – Alison Johnstone MSP [candidate for Edinburgh Central and Lothians List]
Labour – Sarah Boyack MSP [candidate for Edinburgh Central and Lothians List]
Liberal Democrats – Emma Farthing-Sykes [candidate for Edinburgh Pentlands]
Conservative and SNP speakers to be confirmed 
 
The meeting will begin with the candidates giving short talks, from the platform, on their party’s concerns and commitments on cycling and any related transport policy issues they wish to mention.
 
We may then use the very successful format of our Scottish Parliament hustings in March 2011, where the audience splits into groups and the candidates spend 10 mins or so in each group.  This gives you a much greater chance to engage with the politicians, rather than the usual format of a speaker panel sitting on the platform and a limited number of questions from the floor.
 
Finally, the speakers will close with a brief summing up of what they have learned from the meeting.
 
Full info about the event is available on the Spokes website.
