EK Cen­tral South vot­ers have their say

East Kilbride News - - ELECTION SPECIAL -

The News took to the streets in the East Kilbride Cen­tral South ward to hear what vot­ers wanted to change, what they would like to see hap­pen fol­low­ing the elec­tion and if they would be head­ing to the polls.

Alec Lees

“I’ve lived here for over 50 years and I’m happy with the way things are just now.

“I moved here from Glas­gow orig­i­nally and things have im­proved, def­i­nitely.

“I will vote at the elec­tions – but I just don’t know who for yet.”

Jean Brown

“I think it’s a nice area and there has been a lot of im­prove­ments over the last few years.

“The Mur­ray Square is now a place where you can go and have a tea or a cof­fee.

“I haven’t re­ally thought about vot­ing yet but the area is get­ting bet­ter.”

John Thom­son

“Lit­ter is the big one for me. You can’t go any­where in East Kilbride with­out see­ing stacks of lit­ter ev­ery­where.

“Peo­ple com­ing to The Mur­ray Square, or even if you’re just driv­ing in on the Ex­press­way, only see lit­ter.

“It’s a ter­ri­ble first im­pres­sion.”

Amanda Reid

“I want to see more CCTV cam­eras in The Mur­ray Square.

“There hasn’t been too much trou­ble re­cently – but if there was some­thing it’s im­por­tant to catch them.

“Ev­ery other square or cen­tre in East Kilbride seems to have more se­cu­rity mea­sures, so why not here?”
