It has been privilege to represent the Glasgow Maryhill and Springburn constituency as your MSP between 2016 and 2021. I would welcome your support to re-elect me on 6th May.
I stay in Maryhill with my wife Janet, and young son. Before I became an MSP, I was a secondary school teacher for 10 years. Since first being elected as a Glasgow MSP in 2007 I have worked hard to deliver for local constituents. If returned as your constituency MSP for Maryhill and Springburn I will contiune to build on that progress, help to protect the communities I know best, and deliver to all people in Maryhill and Springburn
Glasgow Life have stated they have no plans to reopen Maryhill Library. They have made the wrong decision.
Maryhill Library must reopen at its current location. Glasgow Life must urgently review their position and bring forward plans for re-opening our library as soon as possible.

Sign the petition below and back the campaign to have Maryhill Library reopened.
