Andrew has been a member of the Liberal Democrats since 2001, when he joined the party whilst a student at Glasgow University. He was elected as the youngest Lib Dem councillor in Scotland just prior to graduation and served as leader of the Lib Dems on North Ayrshire Council between 2008 and 2011.
He currently lives near the Botanic Gardens in Glasgow’s West End. He is interested in devolving power away from Holyrood and redistributing wealth so that as many people as possible are capable of standing on their own two feet independently of the state.
Carole was Head Teacher of Kilmarnock Academy for fourteen years and is a former president of School Leaders Scotland. She began her career as a mathematics teacher and is the co-author of several mathematics textbooks. She was convener of the Regulatory Committee of the Law Society of Scotland for seven years, and is now involved in professional regulation at the Institute of Chartered Accountants Scotland.
She is an associate tutor at the University of Strathclyde and occasionally continues to teach mathematics. Fun fact: she attends the finals of the Eurovision Song contest every year unless a pandemic gets in the way!
I have worked for thirteen years with a care in the community organisation. I have been involved with helping supported individuals work within the organisation, and in the training department. I feel very strongly about mental health issues and will work to try and improve all aspects of mental health care, both locally and nationally.
I have been actively involved in campaigning for the Scottish Liberal Democrats since 2009 and have stood four times as a Council candidate and in the General Elections of 2015, 2017 and 2019. I have also stood for Holyrood 2016 election. I live in Glasgow and would feel privileged to represent the city.
Nicholas was born in Govan, in 1971, He also lived in Paisley until his mid 20’s. Nicholas resides in Glasgow where he works as a Sales Director. He has two children, a boy and a girl, aged 15 and 17 and echoes their call for immediate change to tackle the Climate Emergency.
He is very keen that the Lib Dems push on relentlessly, for a Public Inquiry on ‘Coronavirus’ and its handling. Our retention and return of Civil Liberties remain his focus. Closing the majority of accesses to Kelvingrove Park, because of a few, was a step too far.
He is deeply concerned with the recent cuts to services, especially the help provided to parents of disabled children. Glasgow must take a proactive lead with beneficial Mental Health initiatives and also continue to increase the provision of cycle lanes.
