No single person is going to deliver independence for us.
In the SNP we have over 500 elected representatives, thousands of activists and over 100,000 members.
Together, we will win our independence.
Instead of one more high profile figure to speak for us, I believe the role of the Depute Leader should be to support every member to make their voice heard – both within the party and as part of our campaigns.
I’m standing for the role of Depute Leader of the SNP because I believe – at this point in time – we need a Depute focused on the internal work to harness and empower our vast membership, drive through internal reform and build the best possible campaign for independence.
With a network of supporters around the country, and so many offers of help, I hope to run an effective, but low cost campaign. So if any campaign funds are not spent at the end of the contest, I will be able to donate any surplus to the SNP.
I know members are always generously supporting the party's campaign efforts, so I'm not asking for donations. This page is simply to provide an effective and transparent way to accept the donations that SNP members have very kindly offered - to help pay for campaign materials and travel costs to events around the country.
Thank you to everyone who is supporting my campaign.
Yours for Scotland,
