Jamie Hepburn MSP

Member of the Scottish Parliament for Cumbernauld and Kilsyth

I will be backing my colleague Keith Brown for the role, as I know that he has all of the attributes required to be an outstanding deputy to Nicola Sturgeon.ใ€€ Both have worked closely together as members of the Scottish Government, with Keith having been a Minister under Nicola.ใ€€ I am sure he could bring that experience to bear in the role of Depute Leader of the party.

Keith is a popular and well-liked member of the parliamentary group, and in the wider SNP, but he would also be an excellent Deputy for the public too, with his extensive professional and political background.ใ€€ That is why I will be supporting him in this contest.
