Councillor Mark McGeever represents Hamilton West & Earnock and is the deputy leader of South Lanarkshire's Liberal Democrats Group.
Since he was first elected in May 2017, Mark has worked to provide effective but constructive opposition to the minority SNP administration. He is a strong supporter of cross-party working to serve the best interests of local communities.
Mark introduced – and gained unanimous support for – a new policy enhancing the support available to veterans living in South Lanarkshire. This included the creation of a guaranteed interview scheme for ex-servicemen and ex-servicewomen seeking employment with the council. He helped lead successful efforts to get the council to properly investigate inequalities in its recruitment processes.
He has prioritised support for Hamilton town centre and others across South Lanarkshire, measures to make the council more transparent and responsive, the protection of education and social services from cuts, maintaining local roads and footpaths, and improving outdoor public spaces.
