Jim Malone says :

"Dundee has the highest level of unemployment in Scotland , according to the latest data from the highly-regarded Office of National Statistics.

"The figure stands at 6.5 per cent .

"The city has suffered very badly from recent job losses.

"Our forward-looking community - the North East ward - has been hard hit by these government policies of austerity that have created a squeeze on wages and living standards.

"Our North East ward , like the rest of our city, needs a return to a policy for jobs and for increased investment in public spending to reverse the damage caused by austerity.

"If I am elected as your councillor, I shall campaign strongly for more funding from both UK and Scottish Governments for the investment that our city desperately needs to protect vital services for the public."
