East Kilbride East candidate, Gladys Miller has welcomed the first in a series of mini manifestos ahead of the local elections showing how the SNP will work together to help family budgets through tough times.
“One of the key themes of our 2012 campaign is what we will do to help families through times of severe pressure on their budgets.
“An SNP administration at South Lanarkshire Council will work in partnership with the Scottish Government to deliver a number of progressive policies, such as maintaining the council tax freeze, maintaining the Living Wage and a no compulsory redundancy policy in the local authority.
“Parents in East Kilbride want to know that their local council will work to give their kids the best start possible – that’s why SNP councils will guarantee 600 hours of flexible childcare.
“An SNP administration will work with the local NHS Board to ensure care for our older people continues to improve – joining up services and putting patient care first.
“This positive vision is resonating on the doorsteps of East Kilbride and as the campaign continues, we will continue to show how working together can deliver for families across Scotland.”
