According to the Scottish Conservative and Unionist candidate for Argyll and Bute, Donald Cameron, local people want practical action on fixing their roads, rather than resources spent on a re-run of the independence referendum.
Mr Cameron made his comments after praising Argyll and Bute Council following its announcement on how it was planning to use an additional £2.61m which has been added to its roads reconstruction programme.
Mr Cameron said: “Unlike the SNP Government, the council has shown that it understands the priorities of local people.
“Here in Argyll and Bute we want our roads fixed. We want the potholes filled in and above all a permanent solution for the A83 at the Rest and Be Thankful.
“That is what the Scottish Parliament should be focussed on – not being used as an echo-chamber for obsessing about the constitution and manufacturing grievances.
“I am listening closely to the views of local people and, if elected, will devote my energies to practical measures that improve peoples’ lives, and putting an end to this sterile debate about referendums.”
