Standing up for local services

I have always stood up for and championed local services.

I voted against the closure of Duns and Jedburgh Sheriff Courts. 

I have been at the forefront of the campaign for the reopening of Reston station, which has been delayed time and time again by the SNP Government.

I support the Council in it's desire to protect frontline services despite facing cuts of more than £13m from the SNP Government.
