Regular readers will be familiar with the fact that the author of this blog is almost as big a fan of former Glasgow MSP Robert Brown as she is of Paul McCartney and Doctor Who.
We were all devastated to lose him from Holyrood this year but it’s great that he’s now decided to stand to be a councillor in Rutherglen. He has huge Council experience, 15 years of it, prior to being an MSP.
The people of Rutherglen could not wish for a better Councillor. This blog will be following his campaign very closely and we wish him well.
