ALBA Candidate for Dundee Central

As your Alba candidate for Dundee Central, I am deeply rooted in Dundee, having spent my entire life and educational journey here, from Ancrum Road Primary to Menzieshill High School. After initially training as a chef, I pursued further education, achieving an HND in Scottish Legal Services and a degree in Criminology from the University of Abertay. Currently, I am the assistant manager at Dundee’s only residential rehabilitation center for alcoholism and drug addiction, addressing the city’s significant drug-related challenges.

My public service includes serving as a local councillor for the Lochee ward from 2007 to 2022, where I took on roles including convener of Community Safety and Public Protection and City Development. This experience enhanced my understanding of the legislative process and governance, equipping me to advocate effectively for Dundee residents.

Born in 1981, I experienced firsthand the detrimental policies of the Thatcher era and the ongoing struggles against poverty in our community. I am committed to the Alba Party’s mission to eradicate poverty and achieve Scottish independence, freeing Scotland from policies imposed by distant governments. My political drive is fueled by these goals and my dedication to safeguarding the rights of women and children, while opposing divisive policies like the Hate Crime Act.
