Michael Turvey is the Liberal Democrat candidate for Angus North and the Mearns for the Scottish Parliament. He lives with his wife and three children in a farmhouse on the Slug Road near Stonehaven. Michael and his family previously lived on Carmont Hill near Drumlithie.
Michael is passionate about Angus and the Mearns and the everyone who lives there: “we have family and friends from across the UK and around the world and we are always so proud to show them around the area. From the heights of Cairn O’Mount, through stunning forests and farmland to the harbours and cliffs of the Angus and Mearns coastline this area has such diverse landscape and such friendly welcoming people”
“The sense of community is so impressive, you just have to join a toddler group, like the one all our kids went to in Drumlithie village hall or pop into a local shop like Skite’s famous Steeple shop to see how friendly welcoming everyone is. And the farmers are absolute heroes: working all hours producing top quality food and still finding time to plough the roads or help out their neighbours”
Michael has worked for 14 years for an international energy company with roles in procurement, operations, commercial, technical services and supply chain. Outside work he enjoys walks in the countryside with his family picking mushrooms and berries, gardening, woodwork, cooking, baking and language learning. Michael’s priorities for the Scottish Parliament are:
- Health- putting the recovery first, tackling the mental health crisis and learning from the pandemic to respond better and faster in future
- Education - breaking down barriers with a flexible, ambitious and caring education system cultivating a learner mindset and lifelong learning that helps workers navigate the ever faster changes in society and technology
- Energy- deliver the energy transition to tackle climate change while ensuring that our skilled workers have a clear well-supported path to well paid jobs for the future
“People are tired of COVID, tired of the Tories Brexit mess and tired of the SNP banging on about independence during a global pandemic. As a Liberal Democrat I want to put recovery first, get the basics right around health and education and tackle climate change while securing well-paid jobs for people in our area. If you agree with these positive priorities support my campaign and vote for me and my fellow Liberal Democrats colleagues on May 6th”
