The event was the first of a series of business receptions being held across East Dunbartonshire
Members of the Milngavie business community joined Jo yesterday at a reception in Esporta Health Club, Milngavie
Those attending the reception, organised by Jo to improve her links with local businesses, listened to speeches by Dunbartonshire Chamber of Commerce President James Richardson and Membership officer John Corcoran.
Jo later commented:
“As East Dunbartonshire’s MP, I want companies to know that I am keen to work with them to benefit the local business environment. Business and industry has always been a driving force in Milngavie’s development, and the issues affecting local companies must be listened to and addressed in order to ensure the continuing health of the local economy.
“This reception, bringing together some of Milngavie’s largest employers, was a useful and productive way to connect businesses to each other as well as to their local Member of Parliament.
“Politics is sometimes portrayed as counteractive to the interests of business, but
I certainly believe elected representatives can and should work together with business in a spirit of enterprise and mutual success.”
Jo, who is planning to hold further business receptions around East Dunbartonshire over the coming months, thanked Esporta Health & Fitness Club for providing accommodation for the reception.
