In­tro­duc­ing the new kids on the pol­i­tics block

Evening Times - - NEWS -

WELL, read­ers we have come to the end of our time to­gether for this sum­mer pe­riod.

This week I will hand you back to editor Graham Shields.

Shar­ing with you how we on the news team pull to­gether the best of the sto­ries from around Glas­gow has been a priv­i­lege.

It’s not just down to the news­desk.

Ev­ery week we have en­thu­si­as­tic re­porters hit­ting the phones, pound­ing the streets and look­ing up their contacts to keep you in­formed about what is hap­pen­ing in our city.

Get­ting out and meet­ing peo­ple is at the core of a re­porter’s day.

Po­lit­i­cal cor­re­spon­dent Stew­art Pater­son joined new West­min­ster re­cruit Paul Sweeney in the East End con­stituency he now rep­re­sents to find out what he wants to do for Glas­gow.

Your politi­cians, voted for by you, are their to rep­re­sent you and we wanted to ex­plore what the new Labour MP’s in­ten­tions were.

In this year of po­lit­i­cal change in our own coun­cil, we are hold­ing the city’s politi­cians to ac­count on your be­half.

You can read the first of a two part se­ries on new po­lit­i­cal faces on pages 6/7. Deb­o­rah An­der­son
