The Scottish Liberal Democrats has selected Alison Simpson as its prospective parliamentary candidate for the Banffshire and Buchan Coast seat in the 2021 Holyrood election.
The 56-year-old has lived, worked and raised her family in the constituency over the last 33 years.
As a community development officer and social enterprise specialist, she has contributed to many local projects, developing a wide variety of events and facilities - including the Scottish Traditional Boat Festival, Whitehills Marina and Banffshire Community Transport operation.
The party's constituency secretary Alistair Mason said: "She has worked to support many different community groups right across the area, and is proud to have been a part of a number of enduring success stories.
"She has worked hard to ensure that local residents are able to own and maintain community assets and have a say in the issues that are important to them.
"Her professional and voluntary activities have brought her into contact with many local residents, and she hopes to have built a reputation for effectiveness, integrity, and authenticity.
