I’m delighted to share with you this message of support from Brian McGuire. Brian is also campaigning to be an SNP candidate for my neighbouring constituency, Paisley and Renfrewshire South, and I wish him all the best.
Brian said: “I would like to announce my intention to back Michelle Rodger for the Paisley and Renfrewshire North Seat.
“I have known Michelle through business, social media and the work Michelle has done with Renfrewshire Chamber of Commerce, which I have supported and worked with for many years via my paisley.org.uk community website.
“When I heard that Michelle was standing as a candidate for the SNP I must admit I was worried she would stand in my area: she really is a strong candidate and will hopefully win in her area, which thankfully is not the same area I am standing in!
“Michelle is an honest, hard working, mother, with huge integrity and massive experience in the media world.
“Jim Sheridan should start packing his desk away, because I believe that once people get to know what Michelle stands for, and being the best candidate for Paisley and Renfrewshire North, the community will hugely benefit from being rid of someone who does nothing for his community and gaining Michelle instead.
“Her passion for social justice and for the people who live in the community she will represent will shine through.
“Best Regards from Brian McGuire who is standing as a candidate for Paisley and Renfrewshire South for SNP.”
