Statement to voters

In 2015, Kirsty Blackman became the UK Parliament member for the Aberdeen North Constituency having been elected to parliament with an impressive 56.

Full statement

4% of the vote.

Kirsty is the SNP Spokesperson on the House of Lords and is interested in a range of constitutional topics. She is also a member of the SNP’s Economy team and has led for the SNP on parts of the annual Finance Bill. Kirsty has regularly stressed the need for the UK Government to recognise the effect the oil price fall has had on Aberdeen and so provide more support to the oil and gas sector to secure more jobs now and in the future.

In Aberdeen, Kirsty has met with hundreds of constituents and organisations and has tried hard to be as accessible as possible. Her office on John Street is busy as Kirsty and her staff have worked hard to publicise the help they can offer.

In 2016, Kirsty won Patchwork Foundation’s SNP Newcomer of the year award, recognising her work in engaging with communities that have traditionally been hard for politicians to reach. Kirsty does all she can to encourage young people and those from communities who are underrepresented in elected politics to get involved.

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