Thanks - and now it's time to get to work


MAY I take the opportunity to thank the residents of Liddesdale who have placed their trust in me to represented them at Scottish Borders Council.

It has been clear during this election campaign that our community needs to receive a greater share of the local authority purse to help continued growth and development.

It is my intention to listen and act in the best interests of those I represent, relentlessly pursuing that key objective while seeking necessary service improvements in terms of dealing with key matters such as roads maintenance and waste management.

Finally, may I also thank those who have supported and helped me during the campaign and acknowledge the hard work and effort of my worthy opponents.
