Judy Steel is a weel kent figure in the Borders. For nearly 50 years she has campaigned for the Liberals in the Borders since the by-election her husband David won in 1965. Over that time Judy has been involved with many grassroots campaigns and organisations. She is also an accomplished author, editor and playwright. Judy is an authority on the work of James Hogg, the Etterick Shepherd. Over a number of years she maintained an exhibition and display of Hogg’s life and work in Aikwood Tower, the former derelict sixteenth century Border tower house Judy and David restored in the Ettrick valley. A lifelong believer and campaigner for a Scottish Parliament Judy Steel is supporting independence because she believes the journey should be completed and bring home all the powers of government to Scotland.
