Jo’s 2012 Summer Tour Wraps Up

Local MP Jo Swinson wrapped up her summer tour on Wednesday after having visited more than 40 different locations around East Dunbartonshire to speak with local people.

Jo and her team met more than 3,000 people during the 5 day tour visiting schools, shops, sheltered housing, rail stations and other landmarks to hear what local residents had to say.

The summer tour comes in addition to Jo's weekly surgeries where constituents come along and discuss issues she may be able to help with.

Commenting Jo said:

"I had a great week speaking with so many people face to face who might never have contacted me or come to one of my surgeries.

"A whole range of different topics were raised from national issues like the economy to local ones like the Allander, a new building for Lairdsland Primary School, Bishopbriggs Town Centre and Tesco's Milngavie expansion plans.

"Getting out and meeting local residents is such an important part of my job as East Dunbartonshire's MP. I'm hoping the new people I've met will feel free to get in touch if they want to raise any issues or if I can be of help."
