SNP

Rutherglen Reformer - - Ward 14: Cambuslang East -

I am a struc­tural en­gi­neer work­ing for a con­sult­ing engi­neer­ing com­pany in Glas­gow. I have lived in the con­stituency since child­hood and, if elected, I look­ing for­ward to rep­re­sent­ing the peo­ple of Cam­bus­lang East.

I firmly be­lieve in de­volv­ing de­ci­sion mak­ing down to the peo­ple and I am pleased that the SNP govern­ment has in­tro­duced the Com­mu­nity Em­pow­er­ment Act, which will em­power com­mu­nity groups and strength­en­ing their voices when it comes to mak­ing de­ci­sions.

I sup­port pro­pos­als to fur­ther de­cen­tralise coun­cil func­tions and bud­gets to lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties giv­ing at least one per­cent of the coun­cil bud­get to lo­cal groups which will help re­ju­ve­nate Cam­bus­lang and en­cour­age busi­nesses back onto the main streets. I will be a strong voice for Cam­bus­lang East and will cham­pion the im­prove­ment of ameni­ties in the area, in­clud­ing the grow­ing need for a new sec­ondary school to ac­com­mo­date the ris­ing num­ber of fam­i­lies mov­ing into Cam­bus­lang.
