Scottish Liberal Democrats have today announced that local campaigner, Ross Laird, has been selected as their Parliamentary Candidate for Midlothian at the forthcoming General Election.

Ross is a local resident in Penicuik, where he has lived with his family for the past 15 years. Over the years, he has played a leading role in Midlothian through his work supporting young people, both in the community and at college, and promoting active travel. As a small business owner and global healthcare adviser, he also understands local and international business concerns.

Commenting on his selection, Ross Laird said:

“I’m honoured to have been chosen to represent the Liberal Democrats at this crucial election. People I speak to are looking for change both in Westminster and Holyrood. They are no longer prepared to keep voting Conservative or SNP and are looking for people with new approaches and new ideas. The Liberal Democrats have been overturning massive Conservative majorities in rural areas leaving no seat safe in the UK.

“People in Midlothian and across the UK deserve high quality health and education services. I am passionate about giving young people the best possible start in life, prioritising health and social care, growing our economy and addressing climate change.

“Now is the time for change. If elected I will be a hard-working champion and a fresh voice for Midlothian.”
