Education is the top priority for Lib Dem election candidate

Liberal Democrats in East Dunbartonshire have announced Katy Gordon as their Scottish candidate for the Holyrood election.

Katy has campaigned alongside Jo Swinson for several years and was her campaign manager for 2015.

She also has over 20 years experience working in careers guidance and project management and is currently employed as head of the careers Service at Strathclyde University.

Ms Gordon said: “I am pleased to accept the Lib Dem nomination for Strathkelvin and Bearsden. My number one priority in this campaign is about raising educational standards as well as delivering more accountability in local policing and improving performances in hospital services.”

“Many local parents have told me how difficult it is to juggle childcare with working. We need high quality, flexible wraparound care for all, not just the lucky few who can afford to pay for it or have relatives on hand.

“It’s so important to a child’s development that they get good early years education but the SNP is still dragging its feet on meeting its promise for two year olds.
