Scottish Conservatives and Unionists have selected Colin Pike to be their local candidate in the North Kincardine ward for next year’s Aberdeenshire Council elections.

Colin was elected by local members at a meeting at the Bettridge Centre, Newtonhill, on Friday, September 16.

Commenting, Colin said: “Having lived in the ward for over 30 years, I am very aware of the changes this area is experiencing and wish to represent everyone so we have a proactive approach in shaping the communities and environment we live in.

“Recent challenges in the local economy mean that Aberdeenshire Council needs to be thinking differently and embracing what people want and not what they presume is required.”

Current local Councillor for North Kincardine, Carl Nelson, is not standing for re-election.
