Local News

Thank you

On behalf of all the candidates, and our newly elected group of councillors, Argyll and Bute Conservative and Unionist Association would like to thank all of our members and supporters, who turned out in such great numbers and voted in the local elections last week. 

Good 4 Dunoon

Tomorrow is your chance to choose councillors who will focus on the day to day job of supporting your community not one who will focus on indyref2.

The SNP have said it over and over again a vote for them is a vote for independence........it's all they care about.

A strong, energetic voice

Tomorrow the voters of the Kintyre and Islands ward will have an opportunity to elect a new, strong and energetic voice for our local area. 

Get on with the day job

It was a pleasure to be joined on Bute today by Shadow Secretary for Health, Donald Cameron MSP.

As we spoke to local residents, the recurring theme was opposition to Indyref2, with people just wanting the SNP to get on with the day job.

Fighting all year round

I had another great time out on the campaign trail today. I was leafleting and canvasing in Portnahaven, Port Wemyss, Port-Charlotte, Bruichladdich and Bowmore.

Centralised failings causing damage

I was out again this afternoon in Newton, Ballygrant and Keills with local activists putting out our latest literature and listening to the concerns of my fellow local residents.

Local elections are about helping your community

The local council elections are about helping your community and who is the best person for the job.

Be sure the candidate you choose is standing for the community and will get on with the day job. Not someone who wants to use your vote as a sign you support Indyref2 #good4dunoon

Infrastructure repairs taking a back seat

I had another great time campaigning in Tarbert today. It seems that almost every door I knock on, the threat of indyref-2 is brought up as a top concern.

Kintyre campaigning

I'm just back from a very successful two days campaigning across Kintyre and Islay.
