Katy Gordon for Glasgow North
Katy Gordon is the Liberal Democrat PPC for Glasgow North. Katy and the Liberal Democrats are just 3338 votes away from taking the seat from Labour in Glasgow North. With your support, Glasgow North could have a Lib Dem MP at the next General Election.
Working for People
Over 16 years working for the Careers Service in Glasgow, Katy has helped local businesses to recruit young people, helped school pupils to take their first steps on the career ladder and has managed a national project supporting nearly 6,000 people facing redundancy to change direction and get back into employment. Over the years, she has seen the effects of poor decisions by government on young people, on college students trying to improve their life chances and on workers thrown out of work through no fault of their own due to tough economic times.
An opportunity for change
Labour doesn’t deserve to dominate Glasgow. The city has seen decades of neglect, a widening gap between rich and poor and politicians taking voters for granted. Katy wants to show the people of Glasgow North that it doesn’t have to be like this. As Glasgow North’s MP, she will be a force for positive change, someone who listen to people’s concerns and be a strong voice for them at Westminster. This is the Lib Dem’s best chance of making the breakthrough in Glasgow, just 3338 votes behind in Glasgow North.
Campaigning for Glasgow north
The incumbent Labour MP is virtually invisible and says one thing locally while voting the opposite way at Westminster. In contrast, Katy has built up a record as an effective local campaigner leading the Lib Dem team: saving 2 Post Offices, stopping a nightclub being built in the Botanic Gardens, fighting alongside parents to save 3 primary schools. She has also campaigned on getting a fairer deal on housing for owner occupiers and tenants and to protect the environment (joining local residents fighting to save Otago Lane). Katy works during the week but campaigns every evening and weekends to support the people of Glasgow North. The SNP, Tories and Greens can’t win here.
