> Today marks the countdown to the approaching Scottish Parliament election, with only 100 days to go until polling day on 5th May. The Scottish National Party has pledged to keep Scotland moving forward, a pledge which Aileen McLeod, SNP candidate for Galloway and West Dumfries, intends to uphold.
>
> Aileen will campaign on a strong local and national track record, positive vision, and credible commitments to the people of Scotland.
>
> Commenting on the forthcoming election Aileen said:
>
> “Thursday 5th May is an important date for the people of Galloway and West Dumfries, as not only do we have the chance to decide who we want to lead our country for the next five years in Government and who we want as our First Minister, we also have the opportunity to elect an MSP for Galloway and West Dumfries who has proven ability to work hard to represent them in Parliament.
>
> “During the last five years as MSP for South Scotland, my focus has been to listen to the people of Galloway and West Dumfries, and to work effectively for the communities here. My achievements for the area are clear – improving infrastructure by lobbying for the Dunragit bypass and maintaining and improving rail links between the South West and the Central Belt, helping communities achieve empowerment by taking ownership of their resources at the Mull of Galloway, promoting our exceptional food and drink sector at the Parliament and improving culture and tourism by supporting the new Kirkcudbright Art Gallery being just a few.
>
> “Few things are more important to rural areas as access to quality, relevant healthcare. Recent months have seen focus brought to our local NHS as a result of the sudden closure of the Darataigh Unit in Stranraer. I am continuing to work hard to resolve this situation for patients and their relatives, and will go on doing so until local needs are met.
>
> “The issue of flooding has brought Dumfries and Galloway to the fore at a national level with so many people in communities across this region affected by the flooding caused by the recent severe unprecedented weather. I will continue the work that I have already started with the Costal Flood Early Warning Scheme to improve the services to those who are at risk and have been affected by flooding. I have met many residents and businesses who have been affected, and I will do everything I can to support those in our region who have been affected.
>
> “At a national level, the SNP is looking at a bigger, more ambitious programme of improvements across Scotland. As a party, we will spend the next 100 days leading an ambitious, national debate about how to keep Scotland moving forward through progressive policies.
>
> “Over the next 100 days, I will make it clear that I can build on the work I have already done to address our region’s challenges and develop opportunities as I have since 2011. I will work as hard as ever to build on our achievements, to keep Galloway and West Dumfries moving forward and unlock even more of our region’s rich potential. My mission could not be clearer – to earn the right to represent Galloway and West Dumfries based on my record and my commitment to serve as your MSP.”
