As I said both before and after I was elected, a councillor’s worth should not be weighed solely on the quantity of meetings they attend in Kilmory but their visibility, accessibility and hard work.

One year since being elected I’m delighted to have stood by my word.

I am still receiving lots of justifiable complaints about the terrible condition of Mansefield Road in Port Ellen and the hospital road in Bowmore.

With long overdue road works going on across Islay and the rest of the Kintyre and Islands ward it’s only fair that these roads are not ignored.

The condition of the Bruchladdich (sic) toilets continues as painting and  maintenance desperately needs to be done.

Facilities in this condition are unpleasant for all who use them and a terrible advert for Bruchladdich’s tourists.

Since contacting the appropriate department I learned works are planned for the Bruchladdich toilets.

Councillor Alastair Redman,
