In politics as in his work as a teacher, Clive Sneddon believes in helping people realise their potential whether by helping them decide what is right for them or by finding practical solutions to their problems. As a councillor on North East Fife District Council (1980-96), Clive was able to help individuals and communities, and was particularly supportive of using council funds to support community groups through matching funding. Clive also used European initiative funding to promote tourism by working with other European local authorities in France, Spain and Greece. In housing, a heat-efficient dwelling scheme secured reduction in energy needs and costs for tenants. In recycling, substantial progress was made for paper and glass, but a successful pilot scheme to show commercial possibilities for local business was taken no further by the Labour-controlled Fife Council in 1996.

As a parliamentary candidate, Clive has been particularly interested in what can be done to help people with finding and creating work and resolving problems of health, education and addiction. Before the 2007 election, he was a member of a Scottish Liberal Democrat working party on Education policy, which stressed the need to use the time when children are young and able to absorb a great deal to enable them to discover what they are interested in and good at, and also to ensure that they learn to work and play cooperatively.
