Rutherglen Reformer - - Election Special -

We will con­tinue to run a pos­i­tive cam­paign... the elec­torate are fed up with neg­a­tiv­ity

Team Haughey has been cam­paign­ing re­lent­lessly since Jan­uary. We are con­nect­ing with thou­sands of vot­ers on the doorstep, at our street stalls and at var­i­ous events across the con­stituency.

I have been priv­i­leged to at­tend many lo­cal fayres, events and com­mu­nity meet­ings since be­com­ing a can­di­date; meet­ing with many lo­cal peo­ple and small busi­ness own­ers. How can you rep­re­sent your com­mu­nity if you do not speak with them to hear their con­cerns?

As we head into the fi­nal weeks of the cam­paign we will con­tinue to con­tact as many vot­ers as pos­si­ble on ev­ery street in Ruther­glen, Cam­bus­lang, Half­way and Blan­tyre, lis­ten­ing to their con­cerns.

The over­rid­ing mes­sage com­ing through is anger at Labour Party col­lu­sion with UK Gov­ern­ment cuts and their at­tempts to dis­tance them­selves from sup­port­ing Tory aus­ter­ity bud­gets.

We will con­tinue to run a pos­i­tive cam­paign right up to polling day.

The elec­torate are fed up with the neg­a­tiv­ity of the other par­ties. We will stand on the record of the SNP gov­ern­ment over the past two terms where ev­ery house­hold has ben­e­fit­ted in some way.
