No votes for 2017 Labour
Labour faces being wiped out in Rutherglen and Cambuslang if the school bus changes are implemented.
That’s the view of parent Jackie Rinn, who says councillors supporting the move will suffer at the ballot box at 2017’s council elections.
Jackie, who is a Labour supporter, reckons some councillors have simply ignored her and other parents.
And she said Cambuslang West councillor Richard Tullett had failed to provide requested information, although Councillor Tullett this week denied that.
She said: “Not one of them is going to be voted back in, and as a Labour person, I am very concerned about that.
“Gerard Killen was in the Reformer saying Bob Doris MSP was using it for political gain, but what did they expect them to do?
“We have always said, this was not a political issue but it has become one.
“I asked Councillor Richard Tullett for a full breakdown of what the council spends, but I’m still waiting on it.”
Councillor Tullett told the Reformer: “The council needs to make savings, and it would have been helpful if we had not lost the £3.5m we did when the grant settlement changed.
“If we had that money we would not be having to make some of these decisions.
“The council needs to make decisions that are right. There is a due process to go through.
“I have met with a number of people who have come along to my surgeries, one of whom was a constituent of mine, and I have certainly sent back the information I was asked too.”
