Here's what Russ Foley had to say to the P&J:
– Regarding the sacking of the Nairn provost, Liz Macdonald (the Press and Journal, May 11), councillors Sandy Park, Laurie Fraser and Graham Marsden should hang their heads in shame over their treatment of her.
As someone who has worked with Liz in the voluntary sector, I have the highest regard for her ability, diligence and caring concern. A champion for Nairn and a staunch campaigner for the rights of carers and those who require care, she was absolutely right in her comments on the controversial ward forum.
In an increasingly politicised Highland Council, Liz never made any secret of her politics and is not the kind to hide behind superficial “political niceties".
Although I do not share her political affiliations, this I do know: whether it be belly-dancing or standing up and fighting for the good of Nairn, the three other councillors do not have her stomach for it.
She has earned the right to be our provost.
Well said Russell! Laurie Fraser should not be allowed to be Provost under these circumstances!
