East Lothian Lib Dems Select Council Candidate
By Stuart Crawford in East Lothian Courier
Local man Stuart Crawford has been selected to contest the Haddington & Lammermuir ward for the Scottish Liberal Democrats in next years Council elections
Mr Crawford has been active in local politics for many years and was instrumental in curtailing the development of Briery Bank to acceptable limits in the early 2000s. Recently he met with the police Area Commander to discuss anti-social behaviour in the ward and has been outspoken over Haddington's still-to-be-resolved traffic and parking problems. He has also expressed concerns over the proliferation of new housing without the appropriate level of investment in amenities and infrastructure.
Mr Crawford moved to Haddington in 1998, when he retired from the army after a twenty year career, and has lived in the town and in other parts of East Lothian ever since. He now works mainly as a defence and security consultant, writer, and author with his second book, a personal memoir of his army career, to be published later in 2022.
