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

I have been a coun­cil­lor for the last four years and have run a fam­ily busi­ness for nine years.

In my time as a coun­cil­lor, I have seen first-hand the pos­i­tive dif­fer­ence a Labour coun­cil can make to lives. The UK and Scot­tish gov­ern­ments do not re­spect lo­cal govern­ment, they be­lieve we ex­ist to ad­min­is­ter their cuts. De­spite this, South La­nark­shire Coun­cil un­der Labour has con­tin­ued in­vest­ing in ed­u­ca­tion, build­ing homes, re­new­ing roads, pro­tect­ing so­cial care and pay­ing the liv­ing wage.

I am seek­ing re-elec­tion be­cause I am proud of Labour’s record in South La­nark­shire and I feel more strongly than ever about em­pow­er­ing com­mu­ni­ties and in­vest­ing in our fu­ture. My pri­mary con­cern is good lo­cal ser­vices and sup­port­ing res­i­dents and busi­nesses in the com­mu­nity I have lived in for most of my life. If you elect me, you will have a cham­pion for our town and for your fam­ily.
