Shelagh King for Kelso and District.

Shelagh King currently lives in Galashiels, having lived in the Scottish Borders since 2004. She is a doctor, and has worked in the Obstetrics and Gynaecology department in the BGH since 2002.
She has always been concerned about social justice and environment, having campaigned on these issues since she was a student.
Shelagh joined the Scottish Green Party as it campaigns not only for the environment, but for the rights of ordinary people.
Concerned that changes have to be made to address the problem of climate change, and these changes have to be beneficial to the people in this area, Shelagh would like to see Scottish Borders council taking the climate crisis and social justice into consideration in all their decision making.
