Scot­tish Con­ser­va­tives, ward four

The Oban Times - - News -

I am a for­mer MSP with a proven track record for help­ing con­stituents in the High­lands and Is­lands for 17 years.

Oban is my lo­cal town and I am well ac­quainted with is­land life on Mull, Coll and Tiree. I will fight for:

■ Bet­ter ed­u­ca­tion and more op­por­tu­ni­ties for young peo­ple.

■ Safer roads for Oban (A85) and the is­lands, up-to- date fer­ries, an im­prov­ing rail and air ser­vice, and more fre­quent rub­bish col­lec­tions.

■ Pro­mot­ing lo­cal prod­ucts and help­ing to cre­ate new busi­nesses by plan­ning for the fu­ture.

■ Main­tain­ing our great lo­cal hospi­tal and im­prov­ing health and so­cial care man­age­ment.

■ Pro­mot­ing cul­tural events and fes­ti­vals. I will op­pose:

■ The Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment’s poli­cies of cen­tral­i­sa­tion. Pow­ers de­volved to Scot­land should be de­volved to towns and vil­lages and not hoarded by Holy­rood.

■ A tourist tax which would harm our vi­tal lo­cal in­dus­try.

■ Ni­cola Stur­geon’s ob­ses­sion with an­other in­de­pen­dence ref­er­en­dum and I will lobby her and her min­is­ters to gov­ern for Scot­tish peo­ple rather than con­sti­tu­tional goals.

I will give 110 per cent ef­fort.
