Our association would like to thank each and every one of our helpers and supporters as part of the recent Scottish Parliamentary election campaign in Ayr constituency and Carrick, Cumnock and Doon Valley constituency.
At this election we made over 15,000 phone calls across both constituencies and hand-delivered over 100,000 leaflets.
In Ayr, Prestwick and Troon we received the most votes we have ever had at a Scottish Parliamentary election, winning an additional 2,528 votes from 5 years ago. With 43.1% of the vote, this was our best result in Ayr constituency in over 40 years and stands testament to the years of service out in by John Scott for the people of Ayr, Prestwick and Troon.
In Carrick, Cumnock and Doon Valley we gained 3,237 votes - overtaking Labour and achieving the third largest swing towards the Conservatives across the whole of Scotland.
The association wishes John well for the future and welcomes Sharon Dowey as a Member of the Scottish Parliament for the South Scotland region.
Your support for our association and both of our candidates was greatly appreciated and we thank you very much for your support.
