Rutherglen Reformer - - Ward 13: Cambuslang West -

I come from a civil engi­neer­ing and con­struc­tion back­ground.

I stand for bet­ter man­age­ment of the main­te­nance of our civil in­fra­struc­ture, par­tic­u­larly roads. From an out­side per­spec­tive, it seems like it could be bet­ter co-or­di­nated to keep costs down on the tax payer, main­tain our roads and other key in­fra­struc­ture to a higher stan­dard and to min­imise the im­pact works have on driv­ers and the lo­cal com­mu­nity by en­sur­ing a mul­ti­tude of works is not car­ried out all at once or in short suc­ces­sion at the end of the tax year.

I’d like to see un­nec­es­sary spend­ing kept to a min­i­mum as the tax payer is not a never end­ing cash cow and all debts must be paid, even­tu­ally. Our com­forts to­day, should not come at the cost of our chil­dren’s to­mor­row.

At heart, I’m a staunch lib­er­tar­ian and a firm be­liever in in­di­vid­ual free­dom.
