It is a privilege to represent the Glasgow Maryhill and Springburn constituency as your MSP. 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. As your constituency MSP for Maryhill and Springburn I hope to build on that progress, help to protect the communities I know best from the worst ravages of UK austerity, and deliver to all people in Maryhill and Springburn
