Statement to voters

I have lived in Monifieth my whole life. I attended Monifieth High School and then studied social sciences at Dundee & Angus College.

I’m now studying international relations at St Andrews where I’ve been the mental health rep on the university’s wellbeing committee.

My own struggles with depression and a desire to see mental health treated as seriously as physical health are what motivated me to get involved in politics.

Politics is at its best when it’s local people who make the decisions that affect their communities.

Recently I’ve seen Angus councillors make decisions that local people are unhappy with.

We’re losing our recycling centre, being charged for our green bin collections and council tax is being hiked up.

If I’m elected, I want to use my knowledge of our local area to find effective solutions to local problems.

This statement was added by Ben Lawrie, their team, or by a Democracy Club volunteer, based on information published by the candidate elsewhere.
