Cortes welcomes Boyack back to Scottish Parliament

1 May 2019

TSSA General Secretary, Manuel Cortes, today welcomed Sarah Boyack back to the Scottish Parliament as MSP for Lothians.

Said Cortes, "Sarah will make a great MSP for Lothians and she will quickly fill Kezia's shoes. She has a long history of public service in and out of politics. And I look forward to campaigning with Labour's former Scottish Transport Minister on bringing sustainable transport to Scotland.

"It was Sarah who introduced free bus travel for the over 60s and disabled people, a benefit the SNP tried to cut last year by raising the age of eligibility in line with Tory raises to pension age.

“I am sure her contributions to politics now will be every bit as valuable and as radical.”
