Elizabeth Riches

North East Fife

Elizabeth has represented the East Neuk for 27 years area as a Regional, District and Fife Councillor. She was Leader of the Opposition on Fife Council (1997-2007) and then Depute Leader of the Council for five years (2007 – 2012).   
She has been a biology teacher, ran her own small herb growing business and was a Councillor at Region and District level for 27 years.

Elizabeth Riches said:

"I want to be the Member of Parliament for North East Fife so that I can stand up in Westminster for our area. North East Fife deserves a representative who will put the needs of the local area first.

I will aim to provide a first class service for the constituency just like Menzies Campbell and I will work as part of a strong local team alongside our councillors and Willie Rennie.

I will use my experience as a teacher, councillor for the East Neuk and deputy leader of Fife Council to serve the best interests of the area.

“Local people rejected independence by a large margin and should have an MP who can speak for them. Scottish independence is not in the interests of the academic, fishing, farming and tourism sectors"
