Tom Arthur, SNP MSP for Renfrewshire South, has continued to hit doorsteps across the constituency to help with the pressing issues for his constituents. The most recent engagement session took place in the Kilbarchan Road area of Johnstone, along with local Councillor, Emma Rodden.
With several more surgeries planned over the coming months, letters will be sent out giving notice of street surgeries in each area as they are scheduled, giving constituents the opportunity to contact Tom ahead of time and make arrangements for a personal visit.
Commenting, Tom Arthur said:
“It’s so important to be as accessible as possible for my constituents, I have a high street constituency office and regular advice surgeries, these street surgeries are yet another opportunity for local people to air their views and get assistance from my office.
“The response to my recent street event was overwhelming, with so many people getting in touch to organise appointments for the day. The numbers involved really confirmed for me how vital this type of localised engagement is, both for constituents seeking assistance and also for myself as constituency MSP and local Councillors to hear first hand the pressing issues affecting people in the area.
“We took forward a range of cases from the street surgery on widely varying subjects, from anti-social behaviour and consumer protection to neighbourhood improvement projects and housing issues.
“I would encourage anyone who receives a letter notifying of a street surgery in their area, to get in touch on 01505 331 990 or at email@example.com”
