Paisley SNP Constituency Association has confirmed George Adam as its candidate for the forthcoming Scottish Parliament election. George, who has been Paisley’s MSP for the past 4 years will seek re-election to continue his work of representing his constituents and promoting our town locally and nationally. George, who is Paisley born and breed, lives in Paisley with his wife Stacey and is not only our local MSP, but chairman of the St Mirren Independent Supporters Association (SMiSA) and honorary president of Paisley Pirates Ice Hockey Club, to name but a few things George is involved with in our local community.
Speaking after his selection, George said, “It has been the privilege of a life time to spend the last 4 years representing my home town in the Scottish Parliament. When I was elected on 5th May 2011 in the wee hours of the morning, I made a commitment to the people of Paisley that I would stand up for everyone in my constituency, both those that voted for me and those that didn’t.
“I am here to represent you no matter your political affiliation. Since that night, I have worked every day to raise out towns profile and promote Paisley, highlighting everything it has to offer. It is a standing joke in the Scottish Parliament that I will mention Paisley, St Mirren, Paisley Buddies in every speech I make. Now my colleagues may find this amusing, but that’s what I’m there to do, talk up Paisley and bring attention to the numerous great people and places we have in this historic town.
“By seeking re-election, I ask the people of Paisley to again put their trust in me to effectively represent Paisley in our nation’s Parliament. Months of hard campaign are ahead and I relish the opportunity of speaking to as many of my constituents as possible, out and about in our town centre, on the doorstep and throughout our town, putting forward a positive message of how I will continue to promote our town and stand up for the people of Paisley.”
