Scottish Liberal Democrats have today announced that Edinburgh Western MSP Alex Cole-Hamilton will chair the party’s general election campaign in Scotland, as the party aims to change the direction of the UK.
Alex Cole-Hamilton said:
“I’m honoured to take on this important role for my party. We have a great grassroots organisation that is hungry for victory.
“We have the wind in our sails and a hugely motivated activist base, keen to bring the party back to strength.
“I can’t wait to get my teeth into the campaign.”
Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie said:
“Alex has a record of taking seats from the SNP and he will do a fantastic job campaigning for a Lib Dem fight back.
“Our optimistic agenda is pro-UK, pro-EU and progressive. Since June last year we’ve been taking seats from the Conservatives, Labour and the SNP campaigning for a Britain that is open, tolerant and united.
“From Edinburgh to the Highlands, we’re relishing the opportunity to take the fight to the opposition parties and we fully intend to win seats at this election.”
