Candidate for Galloway and West Dumfries
Iain is a lifelong resident of Castle Douglas. He is a solicitor in private practice with 35 years experience. He felt driven to get involved in politics during the Brexit debates as he noted from contact with the younger generation many like him were looking for inclusive engaging politics. He campaigned in the 2019 General Election.
The negativity of the Scottish Tory and Labour leaders during the pandemic last year coupled with the SNP push for separation left a big gap Iain felt he had to stand up to fill. Many people were expressing the view they wished to look for a positive alternative. Iain is married to a retired teacher who is fully supportive of his campaign and conscious of the issues needing addressed.
