Alison campaigning with Chris in Maryfield

We had an enjoyable day today at the Maryfield by-election.

Alison McInnes, MSP for North East Scotland was in Dundee today, campaigning for Chris Hall, our Liberal Democrat candidate in Maryfield.

Alison and Chris toured local sheltered housing complexes and also spoke with residents in the Baxter Park and Maryfield areas about local issues. I took the photos!

Alison commented on the warm reception from residents.

She said, "There is keen interest in this by-election from local people and it is clear that people in the area are looking for their new councillor to campaign actively on local issues including road safety, condition of pavements, tackling graffiti and a whole host of other issues.

"I am pleased that my colleague Chris Hall has been campaigning hard on the issues of concern to local people."

Chris is a hard-working candidate and he's making a great impression in the Maryfield Ward.
