Lib Dem, ward four

The Oban Times - - News -

I live in Salen on Mull and am stand­ing as a Scot­tish Lib­eral Demo­crat can­di­date in this elec­tion.

I am mar­ried with three grown-up chil­dren and two grand­chil­dren.

I have been a mem­ber of Mull Com­mu­nity Coun­cil for two years where I cam­paign on lo­cal is­sues.

It is im­por­tant in this elec­tion to vote Scot­tish Lib Dem, to send a mes­sage to the SNP gov­ern­ment at Holy­rood, telling it to stop cut­ting the grant to Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil year on year, and to re­turn the right to de­cide the level of coun­cil tax to the coun­cil.

The SNP has cut the grant to the coun­cil by more than 20 mil­lion in re­cent years and cuts are due to con­tinue un­less the SNP is stopped.

To make best use of the fund­ing the coun­cil re­ceives, there should be de­tailed dis­cus­sions be­tween Ar­gyll and Bute and the com­mu­nity coun­cils of Oban, Mull, Iona, Coll and Tiree to de­cide how best the money al­lo­cated is spent in their ar­eas.

You can see my de­tailed poli­cies for Oban South and the Isles on my Face­book page: fb.me/david­pol­lard2017. Ques­tions and com­ments are wel­come.

Please give me your sup­port on May 4.
