I moved to Portobello, along with my husband and young son, fourteen years ago. Porty’s a great community and we’ve never regretted our decision.
My involvement with www.porty.org.uk, our community website, eventually led to membership of the current Community Council. I grew increasingly concerned, however, by the reluctance of some members to consult the community we purported to represent. These CC elections, the first for decades, offer the Portobello people a chance for change.
Positive in outlook and with a willingness to listen to your views, I would be delighted to be part of a new, democratically elected, Community Council.
