External event: Local Democracy – what does a modern Scotland deserve?


Does our current system of local government work for you? How involved do you feel with the process? What might work better? How can we do things differently? With local authority elections coming up next year, we ask: what kind of local democracy do we deserve in a modern Scotland?

Our aim is to kickstart a lively debate about reforming local democracy for the 21st century – our guest speakers are:

Lesley Riddoch, broadcaster, writer and campaigner; Graeme Dey MSP, Angus South; Mairi Evans MSP, Angus North and Mearns; Cllr Vivien Dance, Argyll & Bute; Willie Sullivan, Electoral Reform Society Scotland

We are keen for lots of questions from you, the audience – and very much hope you can contribute your own ideas!
