7 Responses to Council election candidates’ contacts

  1. Pingback: Argyll News: Contacts for election candidates published – with smartphone version | For Argyll

  2. Sad state of affairs with the Tories lad not being able to put forward a personal email address. Not heard of Gmail Lewis? Bet he’s on Facebook and Linked-in :) I really think the lack of response re candidate email addresses and pdf’s just shows how our aspiring Argyll politicos have yet to embrace the online electorate.

  3. There is a Tory candidate in the Highland Council area -the Ward is in Sutherland- who is 87 years old and is simply standing because he has been persuaded by Tory HQ that this might “spoil” the SNP vote. This gent lives in Drumnadrochit, 60 miles outside the Ward, and will not be campaigning or bothering with election literature.
    How many other Tory candidates are in this category?

    And here’s a thought! What if he is successful?

  4. I would not normally comment upon the “Like/Dislike” facility on this site but , for the two who have indicated “dislike” on my item above, I am intrigued to learn what the objection is. Do they really think that the action by the Tories in this instance is defensible and, if they do, why not have the courtesy to tell us why?

  5. There should be a maximum age limit for people standing for election as a councillor. I would make age limit the same as directors of public limited companies (PLC) namely 70.

  6. Surely ability is of more importance than age!

    The possessor of the sharpest intellect that I encounter regularly is in his early eighties.He has no ambitions to be a councillor but the idea that he might be barred because of his age is bizarre.

    As one 21 year old said, “When I was fifteen I was convinced that my father was a silly old fool. By the time I reached 23 I was astounded how much wisdom he had acquired in the previous eight years.”
