Paul Kennedy

Candidate for West Dunbartonshire

Paul Kennedy

The late Charles Kennedy, former Leader of the Liberal Democrats, was instrumental in formally introducing politics to his older cousin, the candidate Paul Kennedy. Since Charles was elected to Westminster in 1983 as the youngest MP, Paul regularly visited him in London. The views, aspirations and policies developed by Charles, and the newly forming Liberal Democrats closely aligned with those of Paul. These visions have survived to this date, despite the turbulence caused by alternating Labour, Conservative and SNP Governance.

Paul has, during his adult life, dedicated himself to public service. He served 30 years in a wide variety of roles with Strathclyde Police Force. He covered areas in Glasgow and parts of West Dunbartonshire. 

On retirement from the police, he continued a further career as a secondary school teacher of mathematics and has served spells as a supply teacher at all secondary schools in West Dunbartonshire. He remains in full time employment at a secondary school in Glasgow.

Paul, who resides in Cardross, adjacent to Dumbarton, is intimately connected to West Dunbartonshire on a daily basis. He would find it a privilege to represent this Constituency and follow in the footsteps of Charles. Paul also operates and drives a taxi in the Helensburgh area, when he has time.
