A councillor from Livingston has vowed to fight a positive campaign in the upcoming Scottish Government elections.

Angela Moohan, a mum and Labour councillor for Livingston North, was selected as a candidate for Linlithgow and said she was honoured to have been chosen.

Andrew McGuire, secretary of Linlithgow Constituency Labour party, said: “I’m delighted Angela has been selected as our candidate. There’s no doubt the road back for the Labour party will be difficult but I’m confident with Angela as our candidate this can be achieved.

“Angela is a passionate and prolific campaigner with more than 30 years activity in the labour and trade union movement. All in Linlithgow Constituency Labour party wish Angela well in her campaign and pledge their full support in the coming months.”

Councillor Dr Craig Martin was also chosen to stand in the Falkirk East constituency, which includes Bo’ness, after representing Falkirk North for the last eight years.

Speaking after his selection on Sunday, he said: “I am honoured and delighted to be chosen by members of the local party to fight the Falkirk East seat.

“I promise an energetic and positive campaign to show what improvements a Labour-run Scotland will deliver.”
