For almost 12 years I have worked as constituency manager for Des McNulty and I would like to put on record that it has been a joy and a privilege to work for him.

He is adored by his staff who could not have wished for a better boss.

Des is a very special human being, a truly good man who cared very much about the communities and people he represented.

The people of Clydebank have lost an outstanding MSP who worked tirelessly on their behalf, which to me as a Clydebank resident is a source of great regret, but on a personal level, I and my colleagues Jackie, Joanne and Katie would just like to say 'thank you Des'.
