Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Scot­tish Labour have launched a cam­paign across Ruther­glen and Cambuslang in case there is an­other gen­eral elec­tion be­fore the end of the year.

Ac­tivists have been out in all four coun­cil wards with the party say­ing they are on “per­ma­nent elec­tion foot­ing”.

The party has en­joyed a de­cent few months in Ruther­glen and Cambuslang, hold­ing on to coun­cil seats in all four coun­cil wards and tak­ing Ruther­glen and Hamil­ton West from the SNP in June’s gen­eral elec­tion.

Ger­ard Killen MP has been joined by Glas­gow MSP and party cam­paign man­ager James Kelly on the streets over the past few weeks.

Mr Killen said: “We won in June thanks to pos­i­tive poli­cies and hard cam­paign­ing. This doesn’t stop for the sum­mer and our team will be out and about, speak­ing to vot­ers and spread­ing Labour’s pos­i­tive mes­sage.”

Mr Kelly added: “Par­lia­ment may be in re­cess but Labour is on a per­ma­nent elec­tion foot­ing. We have seen how pos­i­tively lo­cal peo­ple have re­acted to Labour’s mes­sage over the past few months, with great re­sults at the coun­cil and gen­eral elec­tions in May and June. We’re keep­ing that mo­men­tum go­ing and de­liv­er­ing our mes­sage to ev­ery ward .”
