Sarah Flavell will contest Aberdeenshire East.

Sarah has lived in Aberdeenshire since 2005 and is a resourceful and experienced representative and campaigner with considerable local experience.

Her experience with Gordon Rural Action means she is well equipped to help constituents with a wide range of issues, including Welfare, Benefits, Consumer, Employment and Housing.
