UK Lib Dem leader Tim Farron and Scottish Lib Dem leader Willie Rennie joined local candidate James Calder to campaign in Dunfermline High Street today. Alongside them was a group of local activists as well as Cowdenbeath Candidate Bryn Jones and Mid Scotland and Fife Regional Candidate Peter Barrett. All of the candidates enjoyed chatting to people from Dunfermline and West Fife, with Willie getting an overwhelmingly positive reception from people in a constituency he has many ties in, both as former MP and having served as MSP in the region for the past 5 years.

Tim Farron stated, “Ten years ago, Willie Rennie fought a winning campaign in Dunfermline that was upbeat, energetic, optimistic and packed full of ambition. That is exactly the sort of campaign James Calder and our local team are running again this time round and it was great to get out on the campaign trail with them today.

“Right across Scotland, people are voting Liberal Democrat for the first time based on the bold and positive programme for Scotland that Willie Rennie has set out. Liberal Democrats want Scotland to be the best again and we are back to our best too.”

James Calder added, “I am delighted to have spent today campaigning with both Willie Rennie and Tim Farron. Dunfermline and West Fife need to be represented by someone who will put the local constituency first, and I vow that I will always do this.
“I would urge voters to give both votes to the Scottish Liberal Democrats, so we can re-elect Willie Rennie on the regional list vote and make sure we have a strong local team who will work hard to make sure that both Fife and Scotland get the improvement in public services that is so desperately needed.”
