"As a mother of 4 school aged girls, I am only too aware of the benefits of having the most up to date schools. It’s fantastic that we have a new Bonnyrigg Primary, Burnbrae and Lasswade High. If elected I will do my best to ensure the rest of our primary school buildings are brought up to this standard.
As a local resident I am interested in the security and safety of our streets, and I am particularly keen in establishing neighbourhood watches where possible.
I decided to stand as a Labour Candidate for Bonnyrigg, Lasswade, Polton and Poltonhall as I have for a long time been very impressed by Labour’s ability to deliver high quality facilities and services in Midlothian. I feel it is vital that the Community continues to benefit from the successes that Labour has delivered for Midlothian, and if elected I would be privileged to help Labour continue with that"
