Candidate for Aberdeen South & North Kincardine
John moved to the North East with his family when he was five and has lived there since.
Studying at Banchory Academy, Aberdeen College (now North East Scotland College) and Aberdeen University, he was raised, educated and now works between Aberdeen City and the shire. Raised in the North East both in the shire and in the city, John instinctively wishes to get the best deal for the North East, taking power away from the central belt and putting it closer to people of Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire where it belongs.
Having struggled in his early years, John turned it around with the help of Aberdeen College and the University and has decided to stand for the Scottish Parliament to offer a voice in parliament for those who need the same help he had.
He knows life isn’t easy and wants to stand up for those who need it. As MSP for Aberdeen South and North Kincardine, John will be a deep rooted and hard working representative, always putting the needs of his constituents and the North East first.
