Rutherglen Reformer - - Ward 14: Cambuslang East -

I am a fi­nal year law stu­dent (LLB Hons) at The Univer­sity of Strath­clyde and cur­rently vol­un­teer at Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang Cit­i­zen’s Ad­vice Bureau. I live in New­ton Farm with my part­ner.

By stand­ing as a lo­cal coun­cil can­di­date for Cam­bus­lang East, I hope to pro­vide the lo­cal com­mu­nity with an al­ter­na­tive voice to gov­er­nance while stand­ing up for the very is­sues that af­fect you and your neigh­bours.

I will in­crease aware­ness about the what com­mu­nity and so­cial ser­vices are avail­able to you and will fight to bring a more ‘lo­cal’ ap­proach to their de­liv­ery, in or­der to en­sure there is al­ways a frame­work of sup­port and help avail­able.

I be­lieve it is im­por­tant to en­sure so­cial ser­vices, such as health­care and schools, re­main public and lo­cal. It is vi­tal that th­ese are not con­tracted to profit driven groups who fail to un­der­stand the needs of our com­mu­nity.
