Andrew Sinclair

Andrew Sinclair is a Scottish Conservative and Unionist Councillor for the Wick and East Caithness ward, and is also the Party candidate for the Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross UK Parliamentary Constituency, contesting the seat in the General Election taking place on 12 December 2109.

A Caithness native, Andrew won his Council seat as the highest-placed party candidate, seeing off opposition from the SNP, Labour and the Liberal Democrats.

At his General Election campaign launch in Tain, Andrew spoke of his delight at receiving the Scottish Conservative and Unionist candidacy:
"I am honoured and privileged to have been given the opportunity to stand as the Conservative and Unionist candidate for Caithness, Sutherland and East Ross."

"I am proud of my involvement in progressing issues on behalf of constituents in the Far North of Scotland, and I hope to build on this during the campaign. I have taken a particular interest in the damaging centralisation that is hitting our community hard, our depopulation crisis and the Scottish Government’s failure to provide local career opportunities for our young people, with so many people now having to move away in search of work."

“This election is vital in allowing our community to move on. On the green benches at Westminster we must have somebody who will stand up for the electorate in the Far North of Scotland, championing the issues important to this area, whilst also getting Brexit sorted, stopping Indyref2 in its tracks, and getting on with the things that really matter to ordinary people."

“Anything other than a Conservative and Unionist being returned to Westminster will mean more dither and delay.”

Andrew is involved in many local community programmes and ventures, including the Caithness International Science Festival, Caithness and North Sutherland Regeneration Partnership Advisory Board, and Caithness and North Sutherland Fund.
