My name is Mags Hall and I am the Scottish Greens candidate for the Dunfermline and West Fife Constituency. I was brought up in Kincardine in West Fife, and have lived in Dunfermline for the last 10 years.
I am the co-convener of the Fife branch and party council, I have campaigned on a range of local issues including reopening the Dunfemline to Alloa rail line, halting the expansion of Edinbugh Airport over Fife, and tackling the pollution and disruption caused by Mossmorran.
West Fife desperately needs a Green New Deal. The end of coal mining and power stations hit our local communities hard, we can't make the same mistakes again. Rosyth could be a key facility for north sea oil decommissioning, and a freight and passenger hub for low carbon ferries, whilst our colleges should be training the next generation of renewables engineers. We need serious investment to bring the kind of long term, well-paid and sustainable jobs to Fife that should come with a Scottish Green New Deal.
