It's a victory!

For community! 

The candidates commit to meet with community, and to make their views plain on the community agenda. Mhairi Hunter, Jehangir Hanif, and Soryia Siddique were all duly elected. We recognise their commitment.


 Elected candidates for Canal Ward made prominent pledges to defend North Kelvin Meadows. We recognise their commitment. Save North Kelvin Meadows interviewed on this commitment at #TheEventTheyTriedToBan The event itself led to park maintenance that community leaders had been calling for, as part of our Glasgow Won't Be Fooled campaign. A great step forward. Thanks for listening, Glasgow Life. We recognise your efforts.

Hillhead ward was also the scene of another local victory when QMU student leaders got candidates to commit to meet student leaders to discuss ongoing housing problems, to tackle anti-social landlords in the area. But perhaps the biggest news of all was re-elected Cllr Mohammed Razaq committing to up the number of socially rented homes in the Maryhill Locks development from 143 to over 400. A very significant commitment, and one we want to recognise, which tops off a great election for organised communities!


Community leaders will be meeting to discuss the results of the local election for Glasgow on Sunday, the 20th of May. If you want to be part of our process of holding councillors to account for their community commitments please get in touch with our organiser, at:
