Born in Rutherglen, growing up in Cambuslang and now living in Hamilton, I have lived in South Lanarkshire all my life.

By joining the Scottish Green Party, you are joining a community that is seeking to make a difference not only within Scotland but within Europe and world-wide. Greens believe in action individually, locally, nationally and internationally. In order to achieve the kinds of changes that are desperately needed for sustainable living, we need genuinely Green representation in local council chambers, at Holyrood, at Westminster and in Brussels.
