associations and those in private accommodation throughout the city.

BEGINS

Glasgow residents to quiz candidates on the future of Glasgow’s Communities.

Concerned residents groups from all over Glasgow will be coming
together next Tuesday to find out what the different parties have to
say and quiz them on their plans for Glasgow’s communities.

The event aims to draw attention to community issues which have been
raised over the past few months in the run up to the election, from
housing issues, to the sell-off of green spaces

Alison Young of the resident’s network says “It’s important that the
issues that actually make a difference to our communities are
highlighted. Things like green spaces, hospital and school closures,
the ongoing housing crisis and lack of facilities for young people. We
need to have an ongoing debate about exactly which direction Glasgow
is heading in.”

Panelists include Bill Aitkin (Conservative), Robert Brown (Lib Dem),
Patrick Harvie (Greens), Frank McAveety (Labour, TBC), Jim McVicar
(SSP), Tommy Sheridan (Solidarity), Sandra White (SNP) plus
independent candidates.

The event is happening at 7:30pm on Tuesday 24th April 2007, at the
Quality Hotel (previously AKA The Central Hotel), 99 Gordon Street,
Glasgow, G1 3SF
