We have made a strong case in the local elections this year. Candidates running up and down their communities dropping leaflets and speaking to neighbours all while making a few new friends.
Some we have met have been completely unsure on who to vote for, others know they want a definite change but don't know who to trust. One thing remains clear, that an independently minded Pirate providing a positive alternative is needed more than ever.
Tomorrow your votes will decide how strong a mandate we will have in the communities we feel most connected. Tomorrow your voice can be heard and all it takes is one stubby pencil.
Issues ranging from education budgets, to public access to knowledge in libraries, allowing social development in areas of play and keeping our communities safe from anti-social behaviour and dangerous roads have been brought up online, on the door step and in the street.
Pirates build their policies from the ground up. You decide what the priorities are and we represent that to the council, not a top-down, predetermined policy set that doesn't really sit right with you.
