Con­cern at school plans

Rutherglen Reformer - - Reformer View -

Although you could say I am not di­rectly af­fected re­gard­ing the re­cent cuts to the school trans­port pro­vi­sion, my kids at­tend St Bride’s and Trin­ity, many of my friends and fam­ily are and I also have se­ri­ous con­cerns about the po­ten­tially in­creased traf­fic around the schools.

We seem to be stuck in a never end­ing cy­cle of ‘Coun­cil blames - Holy­rood blames - Westminster’ with no­body will­ing to take re­spon­si­bil­ity (but of course per­fectly will­ing to take the plau­dits for any­thing pos­i­tive).

I wrote to all three of my coun­cil­lors in the Cam­bus­lang West Ward with only Richard Tul­lett re­ply­ing and in­deed meet­ing with us. I got no re­sponse from Clare McColl or Rus­sell Clearie de­spite be­ing a con­stituent and rais­ing con­cerns about the in­crease of traf­fic around the schools in their ward. I chased them up and to date, still no re­ply.

Is it go­ing to take for a se­ri­ous ac­ci­dent be­fore an ‘elected mem­ber’ stops play­ing pol­i­tics with chil­dren? Mrs EA Cal­laghan via email.
