The Oban Times - - News -

I have lived in the Oban area all my life, and I am mar­ried with chil­dren and grand­chil­dren. I have run my own small busi­ness in Oban and sur­round­ing area for 20 years.

I be­lieve in­volve­ment and par­tic­i­pa­tion in lo­cal pol­i­tics is es­sen­tial to im­prove our com­mu­ni­ties from the ground up and I have been ac­tive in par­tic­i­pat­ing in lo­cal pol­i­tics for a very long time.

I was in­volved in Soroba Com­mu­nity As­so­ci­a­tion dur­ing the years I raised my fam­ily there, helped fundraise for Soroba Com­mu­nity Cen­tre and was chair­man of the Board of En­ter­prise. I am cur­rently chair­man of Dun­beg Com­mu­nity Coun­cil.

Through my work, which brings me into con­tact with a huge range of peo­ple from all walks of life, I know on a day-to-day ba­sis what con­cerns the peo­ple who live and work in this com­mu­nity.

I will work in part­ner­ship with so­cial hous­ing providers to con­tinue to de­velop so­cial hous­ing, en­cour­age com­mu­ni­ties to be in­volved in the area they live in and to make sure they are kept in­formed about on­go­ing projects in their area at ev­ery level.

Why do I want to be your coun­cil­lor? I want to help change the dy­namic of the way Ar­gyll and Bute ad­min­is­tra­tion makes de­ci­sions.
