From Raymond Christie –
Let’s make Stonehaven the best place to grow up and grow old in.
I have served this community as a Councillor before from 2012 to 2017. I have been active on the community council and present a weekly show on community radio. I am passionate about this town and the surrounding areas, undoubtably one of the most beautiful places in Scotland.
But too often we have been let down by our council, from the dreadful state of the roads to the debacle of the Invercarron Resource Centre. It is SNP cuts to councils which originates this problem, but the values in council matter too and the Tory/LibDems have had the wrong priorities.
If you re-elect me, you are putting my community-focused Labour values into the council to make fairer decisions for Stonehaven and Lower Deeside, and help us continue to thrive.
Scottish Labour – Our pledges to you
You deserve a councillor who cares for the local area. These are the issues I will fight for:
Save Invercarron Resource Centre
Our community has felt the loss of Invercarron deeply – we need to find a long term, permanent location for those affected, back in its rightful home.
Fight for a targeted tutoring programme
To deliver personalised support for children who have lost learning in the past two years, and get our children and young people back on track so they can fulfil their potential.
A national care service
Locally accountable with expanded public provision. More influence from elected members, carers and those who rely on care.
Build social and affordable housing
Good, affordable housing helps tackle povery, improves health and wellbeing, and provides the stability and security people need for a successful life. We need more in Aberdeenshire.
Work constructively with other councillors
I will work tirelessly with the other Stonehaven and Lower Deeside councillors in your interest, because I believe we work best when we work together.
