In­de­pen­dent

Rutherglen Reformer - - Ward 13: Cambuslang West -

Born and reared in Cam­bus­lang I am con­fi­dent that be­ing the Cam­bus­lang in­de­pen­dent will bring a much needed fresh out­look to lo­cal pol­i­tics.

To my mind the main par­ties have failed us in many re­spects. Cam­bus­lang seems to have lost much of its old vil­lage vi­tal­ity, an at­mos­phere many of us well re­mem­ber.

I would fo­cus on eco­nomic re­gen­er­a­tion, bring­ing jobs to the area as a pri­or­ity. Plan­ning, trans­port, high­ways, hous­ing and as­so­ci­ated ser­vices re­quire es­sen­tial lo­cal con­sul­ta­tion and ap­proval. I would be to es­tab­lish a com­pre­hen­sive plan of ac­tion to en­able the public to mon­i­tor coun­cil ac­tions. The pro­mo­tion of care for the el­derly and im­proved ameni­ties will be a strong con­cern of mine. I would en­cour­age the co­op­er­a­tion of our char­ity and vol­un­tary or­gan­i­sa­tions to co­or­di­nate with each other to share in­for­ma­tion. I worked in Glas­gow for the Home Of­fice .
