SSP fights by-election in West Dunbartonshire

The Dumbarton & Vale of Leven Branch of the SSP has selected branch organiser Les Robertson as the candidate for the by-election in ward 16 on the 17 March 2005.

Les said: “I am delighted to be selected as the SSP candidate. I have had the privilege of working in the ward for over 15 years. Jim Bollan has shown how effective an SSP Councillor can be and I hope the people of West Dumbarton give me the opportunity to join him.”

“The level of poor health and poverty people suffer in West Dunbartonshire is the second highest in Scotland. New Labour’s answer is to close schools, cut services and reduce the Vale of Leven Hospital to nothing more than a cottage hospital.

“This is totally unacceptable.”

“The SSP campaign will focus on the alternatives to New Labour by highlighting policies such as free school meals, scrapping the Council Tax and opposition to school closures and the privatisation of council services.”
