Martin Len­non

Labour

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

I am Martin Len­non. I am 26 and I am a post­grad­u­ate law stu­dent and hop­ing to work in hu­man rights once I qual­ify.

I am stand­ing be­cause I want to stand up for and make a dif­fer­ence in my com­mu­nity.

Hav­ing been in­volved in com­mu­nity groups and char­i­ties for sev­eral years I have seen the dif­fer­ence that an ac­tive and com­mu­nity minded coun­cil can make.

As a young per­son, I am keen to help solve the hous­ing short­age and the lack of se­cure, well-pay­ing lo­cal jobs in Ruther­glen.

I am ex­cited about Labour’s plan to build 1000 new coun­cil houses and I am proud that SLC is a liv­ing wage em­ployer and I will work to pro­mote the liv­ing wage in Ruther­glen.

I think Clyde Gate­way of­fers a huge op­por­tu­nity to bring de­cent, se­cure jobs into Ruther­glen and I will work hard to make that a re­al­ity.
