Well it’s been nearly a week since the selection process concluded and I am delighted to have been chosen by members to be the Scottish Labour Party Candidate for the Midlothian North and Musselburgh seat in the 2016 Scottish Parliament Elections.
It was great to see so many members turn up on the night so thanks to everyone for coming along and for putting your faith in me for 2016.
I’ve had a lot of good advice and support during these last few months, thanks to everyone that’s helped.
I received an email a couple of days after the hustings saying that it’s all about connecting with people.
That’s something I’ll always keep in mind in the weeks and months ahead as we campaign across Midlothian and Musselburgh in the run up to 2016.
