Scottish Liberal Democrats have punched above our weight over the last five years at the Scottish Parliament and the team announced today will help ensure that we continue to lead the agenda.
Our party is full of talented people and I am delighted that senior party figures outside of Holyrood will play a leading role in driving our policy agenda forwards for the next five years.
They have contributed a huge amount to the communities they serve, from councillors to campaigners, and bring a wealth of experience to the team.
This gender balanced team will provide strong liberal voices inside and outside parliament.
These appointments will put the Liberal Democrats in the strongest possible position to grow over the next five years.

Willie Rennie MSP
