Kieron Green

In­de­pen­dent, ward five

The Oban Times - - News -

Hav­ing pre­vi­ously worked as a school tech­ni­cian in Oban, last June I was priv­i­leged to be elected an In­de­pen­dent coun­cil­lor for Oban North and Lorn. I pledged then to lis­ten to lo­cal peo­ple, sup­port more af­ford­able hous­ing, en­cour­age in­vest­ment and pro­tect front­line ser­vices – pledges which I be­lieve I have ful­filled and re­peat again now.

Since be­ing elected, I have rep­re­sented our area full-time as a coun­cil­lor, reg­u­larly at­tend­ing com­mu­nity coun­cils and hold­ing surg­eries so that peo­ple can eas­ily raise is­sues and con­cerns with me. I have de­vel­oped a par­tic­u­lar in­ter­est in health and so­cial care – hav­ing served as the coun­cil pol­icy lead and the chair­man of the In­te­gra­tion Joint Board for these ser­vices.

As an In­de­pen­dent coun­cil­lor, I have en­joyed work­ing with com­mu­ni­ties across Oban and Lorn, and with politi­cians from a va­ri­ety of back­grounds to help the coun­cil de­liver the best pos­si­ble ser­vices in these chal­leng­ing fi­nan­cial times.

I recog­nise that there is still much to do – with the coun­cil need­ing to adapt to meet the grow­ing de­mands placed upon it. With your sup­port, I look for­ward to con­tin­u­ing to be able to rep­re­sent you, so please give me your num­ber one vote on Thurs­day May 4.
