Full statement



Dan is a long-time resident of the ward, living in Dalry and having previously worked at Napier University’s campus in Sighthill.

He is a university lecturer specialising in social security, and has helped Greens to develop policy in these areas, some of which have gone on become Scottish Government policy, including an end to benefit sanctions through Scottish employment programmes and a ban on unnecessary disability benefits assessments.
