Caithness News Bulletins Elections 2003
Highland Council Candidate -
I was born in 1969 and lived in Lyth till the age of 5. I then moved to Thrumster where I attended primary school before moving on to Wick High School.
In 1985 I joined the Co-op in Wick on a YTS programme. I have stayed there ever since.
In 1995 I moved to West Banks Terrace. I have been married to Jennifer for 8 years.
Iíve been a Shop Steward for over 13 years and have represented many USDAW members at many types of disciplinary hearings. I believe that this experience would help me in being an effective councillor representing your interests.
Wick is going to make progress in the next 4 years. We will see the Business Park come to fruition, and the results of investment by companies such as Wetherspoon, Belhaven and Lidl.
I would work with the community to
develop leisure facilities such as a skateboard park for the young.
I want a vibrant Wick with plenty going on; Iím a supporter of the events in the Market Square, and local bands and Wick Players.
It is at community level that we could see a big difference, when we pull together to make Wick a brighter, cleaner and safer environment for all.
I would like to hear your views on local issues.
There is a saying that even the longest journey starts with one step. Together we can make a big difference to Wick.
I believe that Wick has bright future, and I would
work to ensure that -
Predictions of doom and gloom and "talking down" our town only harm this community. I'm a great believer in shopping locally, and I'm a supporter of our local talent such as Wick Players and local bands.
I would give my full support to anyone bringing
bowling or a cinema to Wick.
- Upgrading the accident and emergency unit
at Caithness General
Labour has delivered -
I have lived in the Wick area all mylife, and have worked in the Co-op for 17 years.
