Gerry McLaughlan has held Stirling East for the SNP, retaining the seat vacated by the election of Steven Paterson to Constituency MP in May. The campaign has been hard fought particularly in the face of some less welcome SNP related media over the last few weeks ( unrelated to the Stirling by election) but it did little to dampen spirits and we have had great support from an enthusiastic campaigning team in the Stirling East area who turned out night after night to knock doors and get support out to vote. The electorate rejected the Tory/Labour cabal to return SNP representation. The winning margin was 116 Votes.
