ALASTAIR REDMAN

Vice Chair - Argyll & Bute Conservative and Unionist Association

Councillor for the Kintyre and the Islands ward of Argyll and Bute Council. Policy Lead for Economic Growth. 2015 general election candidate.  Served as a campaign captain for Argyll & Bute  on behalf of Boris Johnson during the 2019 Conservative Leadership election.

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.

The Prime Minister has made clear we will not allow a second independence referendum. We are only just beginning to emerge from this health crisis, and the economic crisis has barely begun.
