Rutherglen Reformer - - Ward 12 : Rutherglen C&N -

I grew up in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang and have lived in Ruther­glen Cen­tral and North for 13 years.

I have a back­ground in sup­port work, cur­rently work­ing for lo­cal MSP, Clare Haughey. Deal­ing with con­stituent case­work on a daily ba­sis gives me in-depth ex­pe­ri­ence of the range of is­sues and con­cerns that af­fect peo­ple liv­ing in the ward.

As a mum of two chil­dren, I am pas­sion­ate about and have cam­paigned on many lo­cal is­sues and have vol­un­teered with sev­eral com­mu­nity projects, in­clud­ing lo­cal par­ent groups, Tod­dling Tots, and Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang Food­bank.

My key ob­jec­tive for Ruther­glen Cen­tral and North is to help em­power the com­mu­nity to make their voice heard at South La­nark­shire Coun­cil and to cham­pion lo­cal level de­ci­sion mak­ing. As your Ruther­glen Cen­tral and North SNP coun­cil­lor, I will lis­ten and rep­re­sent your voice at South La­nark­shire Coun­cil in an open, trans­par­ent and ac­count­able way.
