Dr Elizabeth Dick

Councillor Fraser Macpherson writes : Dundee Liberal Democrats were extremely saddened to learn yesterday of the death of Dr Elizabeth Dick, a stalwart of the local party, and, before the days of the LibDems, of the Dundee SDP.

Liz stood for the SDP (and later Liberal Democrats) in Dundee West at a number of general elections and in the 1999 Scottish Parliamentary Election. Back in 1983, she came third with 7,976 votes (17.1%), three votes ahead of the SNP, the best result in a generation. It was the real start of building the organisation in the city.

Liz was extremely active in the Scottish Liberal Democrat Party, a leading member of the Scottish Green Liberal Democrats, serving on the party Executive, and a frequent and eloquent speaker at party conferences.

Liz helped build the party - in Dundee in particular - and she was delighted to see us winning our first council representation in the City for many years in 2001. The fact that Dundee Liberal Democrats are now a real force in Dundee is thanks to Liz and her colleagues in the 1980s and 1990s who built up the party organisation. We owe a great debt of gratitude to Liz and are saddened at her passing.
