Eileen has a strong track record in social work all across Glasgow but has spent an incredible amount of time in Glasgow North East working alongside and with many communities there so will be a strong candidate.
Eileen, 64 is now a South Lanarkshire councillor and formerly a social worker with over 28 years experience in Glasgow. My hat goes off to people like Eileen, social workers get a hard time when things go wrong and yet not even a squeak when everything is going well.
The people of Glasgow North East are having to wait months before they are properly represented in Westminster again, this simply isn't acceptable and it is Labour who caused this delay. I hope the people in Glasgow North East remember that!
The campaign in Glasgow North East will have many issues to focus on, time will tell exactly what all the parties focus on but school closures and the possible bin strike may feature for starters.
However, Eileen is keen to point out that it down to the people of Glasgow North East to decide what is important to them. Well done Eileen.
The Liberal Democrats already have a strong voice in Glasgow in the shape of Robert Brown MSP, and I know Robert will throw his weight behind Eileen's campaign as will Katy Gordon and Jo Swinson MP amongst many others.
