Candidate for Angus South
Ben Lawrie was raised in Monifieth, studying at Monifieth High School and Dundee & Angus College before graduating with a degree in International Relations from the University of St Andrews. He now works as a Peer Worker for an Angus mental health charity and represents the Monifieth & Sidlaw Ward as a Councillor on Angus Council.
Speaking ahead of the election Ben said, “I’m excited to contest the constituency I grew up in. My priorities will be improving mental health across our communities, championing a green recovery from the pandemic and making the case for a Federal UK as the alternative to independence or an indefensible status quo.
