Key to local economy is small businesses
Local MSP James Kelly has said that small businesses are key to the local economies of Rutherglen and Cambuslang.
Mr Kelly visited local employers in his constituency as part of Small Business Saturday last weekend, including James Burns Hair Design.
The MSP and Mr Burns sat down and chatted about issues facing the constituency - including problems with parking in the Burnside area.
Mr Kelly said:“Small Business Saturday is all about companies like James Burns Hair Design. I’ve had a really positive relationship with Mr Burns for a number of years and I know the contribution he and other local businesses make to the Rutherglen economy.
“We’ve got a great variety of small businesses in Rutherglen and Cambuslang and it’s firms like James Burns’s which make our high streets special.
“It is important as politicians to make sure we are listening to small business owners like Mr Burns - so that we can take the issues they are facing straight to the floor of the Scottish Parliament.”
James Burns said:“It was great to have James along reaffirming his support for small businesses here in Burnside. It is good to be able to raise concerns with him as our MSP - and it’s important he knows the challenges we face as local business owners.”
