Bo’ness is a hidden gem that feels it is ignored by the SNP Government who are too focused on another independence referendum to invest in towns such as theirs.

SNP-led Falkirk Council have also consistently left Bo’ness behind.

This is evident from their proposed closure of the recreation centre or their failures to invest in a long-term plan for Kinneil House.

It beggars belief that with our businesses closed and people living in lockdown, the Scottish National Party Government chose to introduce a new referendum bill as one of their last acts before Parliament broke up for the election.

Going forward, we must have the infrastructure to support public services, given the huge demand for housing in this area.

If elected as your MSP, I will work closely with hard-working local councillor Lynn Munro to support our schools, doctors surgeries and other associated facilities.

There is a stark choice for voters at this election.

All our focus must be on our post-Covid recovery and rebuilding local communities, rather than the SNP threating to hold another divisive referendum within the first half of the next Parliament.

If you elect me on May, I will focus on representing the people of Falkirk East.

I will be speaking up on the issues that matter on a day-to-basis for people in Bo’ness and across this constituency.

Only a vote for myself in the constituency and using your party vote for the Scottish Conservatives will stop an SNP majority.

It will also stop their fresh drive for another referendum and have a Parliament that is 100 per cent focused on our recovery.
