Midlothian South: AC May, Liberal Democrats - Scottish Parliament elections 2021
I intend to represent you the only way I know how - by working tirelessly with a keen eye on the future.
I want to ensure that there is investment and improvement in education, employment opportunities and business growth.
I will stand up for better funded healthcare and demand that money is directed towards care homes, mental health and wellbeing to bring these up to the standards we all deserve.
To do this will need a strong economy.
The Scottish Liberal Democrats have the policies to drive the economy forward to bring this about.
A vote for me is a vote of confidence for a more secure future for you and your families.
It's time for a change.
The area needs someone who will heed the concerns of its constituents, and voice these strongly in parliament, not just become another person sitting in Holyrood applauding every word of the First Minister.
Our high streets and town centres - the beating heart of our communities - need urgent help.
This was apparent before the pandemic, but is even more apparent now.
We need to focus on how growing online spend can coexist with a vibrant local economy.
And we need to work to restore community feeling.
I'm looking forward to getting stuck into the campaign.
A vote for me is a vote for progress through strong partnerships within Scotland, across the UK and with our European neighbours.
Together I am confident that we can recover from the current COVID crisis and move beyond the politics of division.
