Welcome to my website. My name is Alex Cole-Hamilton and I’m the prospective Liberal Democrat candidate for the Scottish Parliamentary constituency of Edinburgh Western in 2016.
I’ve worked to influence change in our society in my role as a children’s charity worker over the past ten years. I know how Holyrood works, but more importantly I see on a daily basis how it continues to fail the most vulnerable people in this country with increasingly centralist and illiberal policies.
Living as I do in Blackhall, I understand the problems faced by local people because living here I see them every day. I can think of no greater calling than to represent the area in which my 3 children will grow up, in the Scottish Parliament.
