Rutherglen Reformer - - Ward 11 :Rutherglen South -

I have been a foster carer for over 25 years and through­out that time I have been ac­tively in­volved in my lo­cal com­mu­nity in var­i­ous groups from res­i­dents’ as­so­ci­a­tions to play schemes, hous­ing fo­rums and sev­eral oth­ers.

My time in th­ese groups has given me first-hand ex­pe­ri­ence of the pri­or­i­ties and con­cerns of peo­ple in my lo­cal area, par­tic­u­larly the is­sues we all face in th­ese dif­fi­cult times. I am stand­ing for coun­cil be­cause I want to do what­ever I can to im­prove the lives of peo­ple in Ruther­glen South and to build on the suc­cesses of South La­nark­shire Coun­cil and fight for the im­prove­ments we all want to see in our com­mu­ni­ties.

We must con­tinue to in­vest in our lo­cal area and that is why, as a Labour and Co-oper­a­tive coun­cil­lor, I will stand against con­tin­ued cuts to South La­nark­shire Coun­cil’s bud­get and fight for fairer fund­ing for com­mu­ni­ties.
