I have been burning through the shoe leather while leafleting and canvassing in Portnahaven, Port Charlotte, Bruichladdich, Bridgend, Ballygrant and Bowmore today.
It's great to hear from so many fellow Ileachs about a number of local issues including our erratic ferry service, poor roads and cuts to bin uplifts.
I'm hoping to get over to the mainland side of the council ward and to the other islands very soon.
I'm also very grateful for the letters I have received and will respond to them all in time. Please keep the feedback coming.
