Richard Lyle MSP

Central Scotland

I have known Keith for many years.During our time as Local Government Councillors he helped me on many occasions when we were in COSLA. I found him to be an excellent Nationalist and totally committed to the SNP cause. He was highly respected during his time on COSLA and also as Leader of his Council and he has carried his commitment into his present position in the Scottish Parliament. The support he has from his fellow MSP's shows that we believe that he has the qualities to be an excellent Depute Leader of our party.

We campaigned for the Scottish Parliament to make decisions for Scotland that is why our Depute Leader should be a member of the Scottish Parliament and I believe that Keith has the qualities to help in the leadership of the SNP.

I therefore support Keith Brown for Depute Leader.
