Lib Dems an­nounce can­di­date

The Courier & Advertiser (Fife Edition) - - NEWS -

Cal­lum Hawthorne has been se­lected as the Lib­eral Demo­crat can­di­date for the In­verkei­thing and Dal­gety Bay by-elec­tion on Septem­ber 6.

He said a new In­verkei­thing high school and op­po­si­tion to Ed­in­burgh Air­port’s flight path changes were his pri­or­i­ties.

The In­verkei­thing man has also called for more lo­cal in­vest­ment.

“I am ex­cited to stand for my lo­cal area for the Lib­eral Democrats,” he said.

“The In­verkei­thing and Dal­gety Bay Ward has been ne­glected by the SNP/Labour Fife Coun­cil for too long and with the lo­cal Tories be­ing di­vided on the coun­cil we need a strong voice for the lo­cal area.

“If elected I would be a lo­cal cham­pion and will put In­verkei­thing and Dal­gety Bay first above party pol­i­tics.”

The seat be­came va­cant when Labour coun­cil­lor Les­ley Laird, now Shadow Scot­tish Sec­re­tary, stepped down.
