I’m delighted to be selected as the SNP candidate for the Dumfriesshire, Clydesdale and Tweeddale constituency. It would be an honour to represent my home constituency in Westminster, speaking up strongly for the people and the communities of the heart of southern Scotland.
This constituency is large, diverse and, above all, rural, and that rurality means that challenges in our constituency are often compounded by lack of transport and digital connectivity. Addressing those challenges will be a priority for me. Sorting out our transport and digital infrastructure is the key to unlocking the potential of our constituency.
I would like to see a more level playing field for the people and communities of this constituency. Dumfriesshire, Clydesdale and Tweeddale is the heart of the south of Scotland, not the periphery of the central belt.
Above all I will strive to be a strong voice to represent our community’s needs in the corridors of power. This is a time of unprecedented change for our country and our constituency. If elected to serve as your MP I will strive to put our communities on the map and get our needs prioritised. There has never been a more important time to make sure our voice is heard.
