Rutherglen Reformer - - General Election -

I’m orig­i­nally from Ruther­glen but now re­side in Cam­bus­lang with my wife and two chil­dren.

I cur­rently work in the public sec­tor as a soft­ware test an­a­lyst but was orig­i­nally trained in elec­tronic and me­chan­i­cal ser­vic­ing and have worked through­out the UK and abroad.

I’ve served in the RAF, been an of­fi­cer in the Mer­chant Navy, worked with the home­less in Glas­gow and have worked in the de­fence sec­tor as well as the public and pri­vate sec­tors.

I’ve also en­joyed a trip to Antarc­tica with the Bri­tish Antarc­tic Sur­vey.

I’ve seen the best and worst of this world and I bring all that ex­pe­ri­ence with me.

I have been en­gaged in politics for as long as I can re­mem­ber and have voted for many par­ties over the years, al­ways vot­ing for the party that I be­lieved would best serve my com­mu­nity.

How­ever, re­cently I have be­come dis­il­lu­sioned with party politics .

I have con­cluded that the elec­torate are no longer be­ing ef­fec­tively rep­re­sented by po­lit­i­cal par­ties who ap­pear to con­sis­tently place the needs of their party ahead of those of the elec­torate.

It is with this in mind that I de­cided to stand as an in­de­pen­dent can­di­date.

My sim­ple prom­ise to the elec­torate of the Ruther­glen and Hamil­ton West constituency is that I will serve them and only them.

My pri­or­i­ties will never be in­flu­enced by party politics and my main pri­or­ity will al­ways be to dili­gently serve those in the elec­torate with the ut­most hon­esty and in­tegrity.

I will serve the elec­torate and only them
