Jim has lived, worked and campaigned in this constituency his whole life. He was born in Perth, brought up in Tarvie Place, Letham and now lives just five minutes from Methven. He began his career as a shepherd before becoming a hill farmer and building a successful food and events-based catering business alongside it. He has extensive experience in urban and rural affairs and background in farming as the Founder of Farmers For Yes.
He is determined to win this seat for the SNP to continue the great work of our current MSP Roseanna Cunningham, who is standing down after more than 25 years representing the area.
