Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Edel Ke­nealy

Ruther­glen Lib­eral Demo­crat Scot­tish Par­lia­ment can­di­date Robert Brown and his cam­paign team hit lo­cal streets in force at the week­end.

Street stalls in Ruther­glen Main Street, Burn­side Shop­ping Cen­tre and Croft­foot round­about on Satur­day morn­ing were fol­lowed by doorstep­ping vot­ers across Spit­tal, Blair­beth, Burn­side, Cathkin and Bankhead.

Robert Brown, who has spo­ken at nine hus­tings, said:“We are get­ting a grow­ing re­sponse to the Lib­eral Demo­crat cam­paign in Ruther­glen, with a re­ally en­cour­ag­ing num­ber of peo­ple telling us they’ve al­ready voted for us on the postal vote.

“Many peo­ple clearly feel that they can’t wait for the SNP to sort out the prob­lems. Af­ter nine years of SNP govern­ment, we are left with im­mense and grow­ing prob­lems in schools, col­leges and the NHS.

“We are find­ing a lot of sup­port in par­tic­u­lar for our plans to in­vest a penny on in­come tax in re­vers­ing the SNP cuts and trans­form­ing schools, col­leges and early years.

“The new pow­ers com­ing to the Scot­tish Par­lia­ment makes the next par­lia­ment one of real op­por­tu­nity. We can and should use th­ese new pow­ers for trans­for­ma­tional change in Scot­land.“

Step­ping Up Robert Brown said he will be work­ing hard to se­cure as many lo­cal votes as pos­si­ble in the com­ing days
