MSP

Gordon Macdonald (SNP) is the MSP for Edinburgh Pentlands. His email address at the Parliament is gordon.macdonald.msp@parliament.scot. His local office is at 9 Kingsknowe Park, Edinburgh EH14 2JQ (tel: 0131 443 0595). Details of his surgeries can be found here. The whole of the area we cover falls within Edinburgh Pentlands constituency.

Although Gordon represents all of Pentlands constituency and his literature lists most of the localities represented, it fails to mention Slateford (the area west of the river is in the constituency and in our area). This oversight has been pointed out to him but no action has been taken.
