South of Scotland MSP, Graeme Pearson (centre) and his Regional Development Officer, John McKenzie (far right), gave their support for the campaign during their visit to Straiton this morning. Graeme said “there is something special about what we’ve got here and we shouldn’t destroy it.” And about windfarms in Scotland he mentioned that “the money’s wrong, the technology’s wrong. The future for Scotland is about maintaining tourism and the environment for the future.”
He offered to ask questions in Parliament on our behalf and gave us a great deal of useful information and advice.
As a committee I think you are doing a sterling job of encouraging folk like this to visit and see for themselves what the situation is.
It certainly makes me feel better when I see the support given by people in places of power.
Thanks Guys for keeping the momentum going.
