Local Community Campaigner to Stand for Greens in Black Isle

Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

The Scottish Green Party has announced its candidate for the Black Isle ward in the forthcoming Highland Council elections.  She is Myra Carus, a long-time resident of Rosemarkie and an activist within the community.

Myra was recently instrumental in highlighting the Council’s absurd new rules requiring free community events to pay for a licence, and the council was forced into a u-turn.  She is also an active member of Transition Black Isle and the Rosemarkie Amenities Association.

Myra said: “I am honoured to be chosen by the Greens to contest the Black Isle ward.  In past elections the Black Isle has always delivered a substantial Green vote so I am optimistic that we can do well this time.

“I look forward to bringing some common sense into the Council’s decision-making!”
