Dave Dempsey is the Scottish Conservative and Unionist councillor for Inverkeithing & Dalgety Bay and is Leader of the Conservative Group on Fife Council.
I was born and grew up in Kirkcaldy and have lived in North Queensferry for 30 years.
After a career in software engineering, I moved into local politics and have represented the Inverkeithing & Dalgety Bay Ward for the last 10 years. For most of that time, I’ve led the Conservative Group on Fife Council and, for the last 5 years, I’ve chaired one of the Council’s Scrutiny Committees.
I find that being a full-time councillor and political activist takes up all the time I have but I’m still able to work through my CD collection while driving to meetings.
