Rutherglen Reformer - - Ward 13: Cambuslang West -

I have lived in New­ton for the past 20 years, and be­fore that Ruther­glen and the east end of Glas­gow.

I’ve worked in var­i­ous ar­eas of the public sec­tor in­clud­ing in home­less­ness and the NHS. I’ve a good un­der­stand­ing of the poli­cies and the chal­lenges be­ing faced in the public sec­tor, and of the im­por­tance of public sec­tor ser­vices to the res­i­dents in Cam­bus­lang West.

Over the years I’ve worked with many com­mu­nity groups, in­clud­ing fam­ily sup­port groups, part­ner­ship groups and car­ers’ groups. I be­lieve the only way to con­tinue to im­prove the en­vi­ron­ment, hous­ing and in­fra­struc­ture, to en­sure max­i­mum op­por­tu­ni­ties and qual­ity of life for res­i­dents in Cam­bus­lang and pro­tect them against the Scot­tish Govern­ment’s aus­ter­ity poli­cies is to have Labour coun­cil­lors in South La­nark­shire.

I’d rel­ish the op­por­tu­nity to be able to try and make a pos­i­tive con­tri­bu­tion on be­half of the peo­ple of Cam­bus­lang.
