Midlothian Liberal Democrats have announced that local campaigner, Ross Laird, will be representing the Party in the forthcoming General Election, which will be fighting against Tory plans for a hard Brexit, better rights for workers and more investment in services.
Ross lives with his family in Penicuik and has a long history of working for his local community. He is Vice Chair of Penicuik YMCA and has set up a cycling group in the county. He runs a successful business in Edinburgh and plays a leading role in national heritage and youth development organisations.
Commenting on his selection, Ross Laird said:
“Midlothian’ economy is reliant on our connections across the UK and Europe –from world class research at The Roslin Institute to funding and support for our colleges. Brexit will have a detrimental effect on them and the Midlothian economy. Instead, we want to build a positive future for our area.
“Liberal Democrats are the only party that has consistently championed Britain’s membership of the European Union, because we believe that Britain’s best chance to succeed is within the EU.
“A vote for the Lib Dems is a vote for investment and an MP standing up for people’s rights.”Tweet Share on Facebook
