Our campaign to elect Charlie Abel as Councillor for Dyce, Bucksburn and Danestone was not successful – this time!
Our campaign team were brilliant – couldn’t ask for better! Local campaigners were joined by Alba activists from across Scotland, keen to share with voters the advantages which Scotland would enjoy as an independent country.
As a local man, Charlie put his finger on many local issues and had many interesting conversations with the people he canvassed and met on the campaign trail.
On this occasion voters chose a different candidate, Graeme Lawrence for the Labour Party. Charlie offers him heartiest congratulations on his win.
Alba can take heart on several fronts:
- The vote for Alba doubled from the last election
- Voting patterns, especially 2nd preference votes, were very encouraging for the next Scottish Parliamentary election
- Voter feedback on the doorstep was very positive.
