- Date of Birth:
I am proud to represent the Central Scotland region in the
Scottish Parliament, having been elected in May 2016.
I was a local councillor in South Lanarkshire, East Kilbride
West ward from 2007 until 2017 and I enjoyed every minute of it. I have been a
member of the East Kilbride Task Force since its inception in 2012.
Prior to entering politics full time, I was a journalist
from 1983 until 2016. I worked for various newspapers until I moved to
the Scottish Sun in 1990 and was with the paper until I was elected an MSP.
I was born in Aberdeen and have lived in East Kilbride for
over 20 years with my wife and our two daughters. Outside of politics I
am an avid football fan, I enjoy cycling and hill walking – and I am also the
species champion for the billberry bumblebee – a species found in the Scottish
hills. I am a keen jazz fan; the late saxophonist Art Pepper is my
St Aidan's High, Carlisle
Graham worked as a reporter and then sub-editor on local papers in England before joining The Scottish Sun in 1990. Had brief holiday at the Daily Record.
