Graeme Dey MSP
Graeme Dey is the SNP MSP for Angus South constituency. He was born and raised in Aberdeen, attending Greenfern Infants school followed by Springhill and Broomhill primaries and Harlaw Academy. He left the Granite City for Dundee in 1985 to pursue his career in journalism, moving to Angus five years later.
Having first served as Mike Weir’s Election Agent, managing successful campaigns in 2001, 2005, and 2010, he was elected to the Scottish Parliament in 2011, where he is currently the Convener of the Parliament’s Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform Committee. This followed serving as Depute Convenor of the Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee in the last Parliament (2011-2016).
Married, with two grown up children, Graeme has lived in Carnoustie for twenty six years. Away from the cut and thrust of politics, Graeme relaxes by swimming, going to the gym, playing the very occasional round of golf, listening to music, following the fortunes of Aberdeen FC and Manchester United and watching stand up comedy.
