A SECOND independent candidate is standing for Gourock in the Inverclyde Council elections next month -- local community councillor Lynne Quinn. 

Lynne said: "I believe that Gourock could benefit greatly by having two independent councillors to ensure our town continues to get the attention is deserves."

"In my community council role I have enjoyed bringing solutions to local problems and delivering events which build on the community spirit. 

"I have witnessed first-hand what a good independent councillor can achieve. Councillor Ronnie Ahlfeld continually delivers for our town despite not having the backing of any political party. 

"I feel that I too have the necessary skills to become an effective independent councillor and can continue to deliver for Gourock, making decisions in consultation with local people and not based upon any political party’s agenda. 

"If elected, I will work in partnership with Councillor Ahlfeld to ensure Gourock comes first."

Lynne said: "Gourock is a great place to bring up a family and building a community is at the heart of what I have been doing, in my various roles over the past five years.

"I understand that there are tough times ahead with a lot of hard decisions with regards to council budget constraints. My 18 years’ experience in financial services, managing both staff and budgets, should assist me in this aspect of the role."

Lynne co-founded and runs a parent support group, is a volunteer panel member for the Children’s Hearing system and is actively involved on both the St Ninian’s and St Columba’s school parent councils.

She is secretary of Gourock Community Council and has been an active member for five years. This has led to involvement on the Gourock Highland Games fringe events sub-group; the town's heritage group and regeneration forum, and Gourock Garden Party Committee.

Inverclyde West (Ward Five) covers all of Gourock and will have three of the 22 Inverclyde councillors.
