I lived much of my life in Rutherglen and have had a varied career in sales, as a home help and have now returned to college to study social care.
I have two grown up sons and a grandson. I have been secretary of Overtoun Park Bowling Club, a mental health volunteer and involved in Croftfoot Action Group.
The key challenges in the ward are the town centre and parking congestion on areas like Reid Street or Greenhill Street.
I want a dynamic Town Centre Action Group with good leadership to improve the area, attract new business and improve parking arrangements.
I support a renewed campaign to tackle dog fouling focusing on the worst areas with posters, more bins and action by dog wardens. Liberal Democrats want action to deal with roofs, roughcast, close painting and bin shelters in the older council houses.
