Finalising the strong team of candidates who will stand for the party in constituencies across the country SNP Business Convener Bruce Crawford MSP
“At this conference we have fired the starting gun for the campaign. We are inviting people across Scotland to work with us to make Scotland better and our strong team of candidates will be out across the country listening to their views.
“In the first term of an SNP Government we have made real progress for Scotland, reducing hospital waiting times, delivering thousands of apprenticeships, and putting record numbers of police on the beat but we know there is more to do.
“It is the SNP at this election that not only has a vision for Scotland’s future and the team of people to deliver it, but is listening to the public on their ideas to make Scotland better and making the case for the financial powers and the powers of independence we need to combat the dismal decade of cuts coming Scotland’s way.
“A second term SNP government - working with the people of Scotland - will ensure that Scotland continues to move forward, that we can continue to make our country better.”
