www.syp.org.uk/elections The Scottish Youth Parliament Election is taking place between now and the 13 th of March. You can vote online at www.syp.org.uk/elections www.syp.org.uk/elections All young people between the ages of 12 and 25 can vote using their Young Scot card number.
Midlothian north and Musselburgh Candidate Hazel Macaulay I feel that teenagers and young adults are often overlooked, through me you can get your point across and be heard! The issues important to me are: 1. Midlothian should have more places for people our age to go. Young people only really have two options; to go into Edinburgh or to stay at home. The problem with going uptown is that you need money and why would you want to stay at home when you can go out with friends? I think that rather than just wandering the streets there should be a place where teenagers can go. 2. My second idea is for leisure activities to become free within Midlothian. I don’t think it is right for adults to tell us to become active and then charge us money to use the facilities. I understand that money is tight but I’m sure cuts could be made elsewhere to cover the costs of this.
Midlothian north and Musselburgh Candidate Jorji Laing I will fight for what the young people of Scotland want as I am passionate that we can make a change Issues important to me are: 1.Raising the Minimum Wage 2.Better Training Opportunities for People Who Have Left School 3.Lowering the Price of Transport for People who are Still in Full-Time Education 4.Better Part-Time Job Opportunities for People Who Are Still in Full-Time Education
