“I am delighted and privileged to be selected as the LibDem Dundee West Candidate in the 2015 General Election. I am thoroughly looking forward to taking part in the political process and engaging with the people of Dundee West. It is essential we maintain political interest after the referendum and I am determined to work hard for everyone across the constituency.”

Daniel has been actively campaigning for the Scottish Liberal Democrats across Dundee West. Liberal Democrat councillor for Dundee’s West End, Cllr Fraser Macpherson, added,

“Daniel will be one of the Liberal Democrats’ youngest candidates at next year’s General Election but he already has a wide range of experience and will bring a fresh of fresh air and much enthusiasm to the General Election campaign in Dundee West. I am delighted that our members in Dundee have chosen Daniel to be our parliamentary candidate in Dundee West and will be working with him and the LibDem Dundee team in the run-up to May 2015

    Hi, wonder if you could help the residents facing Charlotte park , in respect of the play park which seems to have been passed without consultation from neighbours it will affect. As you are aware of the pavilion has been a cause of concern with anti social behaviour which will get worse with a playpark stuck right outside our houses, there is enough land in the park to position it away from residential housing. Kind regards.
