THE NEW councillors for Monifieth and Sidlaw took a moment to share their thoughts with the Guide & Gazette following the election count.
Rob Murray, SNP, showed us his shaking hands, smiled, and announced: “It’s a relief!”
Margaret Thomson, Labour said: “I’m pleased that people have recognised that I have worked hard for them over the last five years. I’m happy to be in for another five years.”
Sheila Hands, SNP, had a touch of the oracle about her when she said at lunchtime: “We’ve got a good opportunity to help Monifieth and Sidlaw, but also to take Angus Council and the administration. We’re on a good roll so far with eight out of nine.”
Craig Fotheringham, Scottish Conservative and Unionist, is just one of the many new faces on Angus Council. He said: “I’m absolutely overwhelmed, I couldn’t believe the vote.”
