Grant Ni­chol­son In­de­pen­dent, ward five

The Oban Times - - News -

I am ask­ing for your vote at the lo­cal coun­cil elec­tion on May 4.

I am a mem­ber of Oban Com­mu­nity Coun­cil and have a keen in­ter­est in lo­cal pol­i­tics.

I am em­ployed in the Whisky Shop in Oban and I pre­vi­ously worked for the Royal Mail for 30 years.

My de­liv­er­ies were in lo­cal and ru­ral ar­eas, which has given me a gen­eral knowl­edge of the wide ex­panse of the Oban North and Lorn ward I am wish­ing to rep­re­sent.

I was born and brought up in Oban and went to Rock­field School and Oban High School.

I am mar­ried and have two grown-up chil­dren and a lovely grand­son.

I was a mem­ber of St Columba’s school board and sec­re­tary of its par­ent as­so­ci­a­tion.

Lo­cal gov­ern­ment is the most im­por­tant of all po­lit­i­cal struc­tures.

By this I mean you are in di­rect con­tact with the peo­ple, and their views and opin­ions.

At this mo­ment in time the peo­ple are not be­ing lis­tened to.

To change this, I need your vote to carry your voice for­ward to Kil­mory.

I re­alise it will not be an easy job but, with your help, I will do my ut­most to find a way for­ward.
