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.
