ALBA Candidate for Airdrie & Shotts

Born and raised in Airdrie and Shotts, I have a real understanding of the challenges our community faces. I’ve been a lifelong campaigner for independence, and as a founding member of ALBA, I’m clear in my belief that independence is an immediate priority for our nation and that every single election should be used to seek a mandate to begin negotiations for Independence.

As a bio-medical engineer working for a local company, I support disabled people and those with health challenges through innovative technology, helping them excel in employment and lead independent, fulfilling lives.

The current Tory government has failed us, leaving 14 years of devastation and poor political choices in its wake. Locally, successive Labour councils have also caused significant damage to our communities. Now is not the time to revert to Labour or other failed political parties. It’s time for a fresh approach—one that recognises the issues and has the expertise to implement real solutions.

Together, we can build a better future for Airdrie and Shotts and secure our country's independence.
