Cunninghame North constituency of the Scottish Labour Party have selected former local MP Katy Clark as their candidate to fight for the local area in the Scottish Parliamentary elections in May 2021. 

Katy Clark expressed her delight at being selected as the candidate in an area she had the privilege to serve for over 10 years. 
Katy said: “I was MP for North Ayrshire and Arran from 2005 to 2015 so have experience of representing all of Cunninghame North and taken up issues for constituents, businesses, community groups and organisations. 
"Cunninghame North needs a powerful voice who will put the needs of constituents first, fight for jobs and investment and recognise the real challenges we face as a result of deindustrialisation, lack of investment and now the economic difficulties caused by the pandemic." 
Katy will be contesting the seat against the current incumbent, the SNP's Kenneth Gibson, who has held the seat since 2007.
