We are raising funds to help re-elect Jenny Marra to the Scottish Parliament as the MSP for Dundee City West.
Jenny has been a strong and powerful voice in the Scottish Parliament for values of fairness and social justice; delivering world leading legislation for victims of Human Trafficking. Jenny believes in progressive politics and a better Scotland. She has campaigned vigorously for the rights of workers and better opportunities for our young people. Dundee needs a strong voice in the Scottish Parliament.
Jenny Marra - Why I am standing for Dundee City West:
"Dundee is a great city and as a proud Dundonian, I am committed to the community I was raised in. I make sure that I take every opportunity to sing its praises far and wide. I spent five years promoting Dundee University as a location for students, research and investment at home and abroad before becoming a Labour Member of the Scottish Parliament.
"I am Scottish Labour's spokesperson on health, equalities, welfare, care and social inclusion matters.
"It would be an honour and a privilege to represent my home City in the Scottish Parliament as the MSP for Dundee City West.
"I want to spend the next five years running successful local campaigns like those I have fought so far – for more jobs, for gender equality, for better sports facilities for our youngsters and for a better deal for Dundee.
"I will work relentlessly to make sure that our city gets our fair share of the skilled, well paid jobs that the £35 billion decommission of North Sea platforms and pipelines presents. We need more than just a waterfront – we need a working river.
"Our city is suffering massive cuts to our council services, schools, universities and our college. Instead of living up to their self-proclaimed anti-austerity image, the SNP have turned Dundee into Scotland’s Sold Out City.
"We need a change for the better. I will stand up for Dundee."
