Put candidates on the spot at The Buteman’s hustings

THE Scottish Parliament election is only two months away – and this week we’ve finalised arrangements for The Buteman’s traditional pre-election hustings.

The meeting will be the perfect chance to ask questions directly of the people who want to be your next constituency MSP.

The date for your diary is Monday, April 18 at 7.30pm at Rothesay Pavilion – and don’t worry, there will be plenty of reminders of the event until then!

So far, five candidates have thrown their hats into the ring ahead of the May 5 polling day: Alison Hay (Liberal Democrat), Jamie McGrigor (Conservative), Mick Rice (Labour), Michael Russell (SNP) and George White (Liberal).

The deadline for nominations is Tuesday, March 29, so there may be more names to add to that list between now and then – rest assured that we’ll cover all the developments in the campaign over the coming weeks...
