Local issues in Edinburgh North and Leith

We're collecting local issues in Edinburgh North and Leith. Some of these have been turned into questions to put to the candidates standing at the 2010 general election in the form of a questionnaire.

Issues are no longer being turned into questions, but we still want them! A good local issue will be about a problem of local relevance, possibly suggesting how something should have been/be done.

Local questions for candidate questionnaire

These are the questions that have been made out of the local issues Demoracy Club volunteers have posted. They'll make up the 'local' section of a questionnaire that TheyWorkForYou is developing in conjunction with Demoracy Club. Below the question is the local issue it's derived from.

How well are your candidates doing at responding to our survey?

We've sent questionnaires to as many candidates as we can in Edinburgh North and Leith, but they've not all managed to reply.

Can you help encourage the ones who've not replied yet?

We'll be putting the results of the questionnaire online as soon as we have a few more replies. In the mean time, you can see a version of what we're sending to your candidates here.
