James with Lib Dem leader Tim Farron

The Dunfermline Liberal Democrats have selected James Calder as the candidate for the Dunfermline North Council by-election on November 26th. James, who lives and works locally for a small IT business, has stood as a Candidate in Dunfermline North in 2012 and is focussed on serving the interests of local people and improving the area.

Outside of work and politics, James has a variety of interests including fencing, where he has competed for Dunfermline Fencing Club, as well as playing guitar.

James has declared ‘I am really happy to stand for election in Dunfermline North again. As a local resident it is very important to me that we have the best possible representation in the Council and would really like to opportunity to do my bit to help out. There is so many things that I think can be improved. My campaign to deal with litter problems in Dunfermline North continues. Earlier this year I launched my “Dunfermline Needs a Fix” campaign to get Dunfermline proper investment from the Council. In Dunfermline North this includes derelict buildings, potholes on our roads and damaged pavements. If given the chance, I would work tirelessly to represent the interests of the people of Dunfermline North in Fife Council. ‘

Willie Rennie, leader of the Scottish Liberal Democrats has commented ‘James has been a strong Liberal Democrat campaigner for local residents and has a strong desire to do the best for the area. He would be a great Councillor for Dunfermline North and I urge voters to support him.’

If you want a hard working councillor to represent your community, give James Calder your vote this May.
