ALASTAIR REDMAN

Councillor for the Kintyre and the Islands ward of Argyll and Bute Council. Policy Lead for Economic Growth. 2015 general election candidate.

A hardworking councillor can achieve a lot for local communities and I want to represent the people of Kintyre & the Isles ward on Argyll & Bute Council and try to solve some of the many issues we see around us on a daily basis.

As a native of Islay, the former Postmaster in Portnahaven and a former Community Councillor, I am deeply involved in my local community. I want to make sure that rural and island communities are treated fairly and with respect.

All of the campaigning I have done over the years has confirmed to me that I want to continue to work for improvements to our services and infrastructure across Kintyre & the Isles.

Whether it’s poor broadband access or an inadequate mobile phone reception, problems with the ferries or renewable energy issues, potholes in the roads or missing street signs, I want to hear your views.

I want to work with local people to make this an even better place to live for all residents.

If you have something to say and don’t feel you’ve been listened to, then I want to hear from you.

Together we can build an even better community.

Plan to break up the country would lead to a hard border at Berwick.

The SNP are obsessed with independence at any cost as Nicola Sturgeon admitted recently that her plan to break up the country would lead to a hard border at Berwick.

Now Sturgeon needs to come clean about the savage cuts to public services under her blueprint for indyref2.

Sluggish repair of some social housing stock

In Bowmore today I was very busy speaking to my constituents and leafleting. The rough and in some cases hazardous surfaces of local pavements are raised as a top local concern.

Film in Argyll & Bute

Argyll and Bute’s popularity as a filming location is well established – and the Argyll & Bute Council is working alongside residents and partner organisations to ensure that the trend continues.

Warning about “nightmare pact” between Corbyn and Sturgeon

Tony Blair has warned Jeremy Corbyn not to do a deal with Nicola Sturgeon. At an event in Edinburgh, Tony Blair said he would ‘struggle’ to vote Labour, and said that Corbyn should not use the union as a ‘bargaining chip’ with the SNP.

Significant Investment in our road network

I was out and about leafleting and speaking to my constituents on the doorstep in Bridgend, Newton and Ballygrant again today. Among the many issues brought up were vehicles speeding through our villages, disruptions to ferry sailings, slow internet speeds and poor road conditions.
