Colin, one of the area’s two SNP councillors, has announced that he is retiring from his role as a member of Highland Council. He has informed the Council’s Chief Executive and office bearers and members of the local branch of the SNP of his decision.
He told the Gurn that after his recent surgery it was the only way to get a little stronger and to be able to focus on his exercise regime and recovery. He said: “Nairn needs full-time Councillors and going forward, that is regrettably not me.”
The Gurn understands that there may be more information from Colin in this week’s Nairnshire Telegraph – usually available on a Monday evening from one of Nairn’s many Co-op stores. Colin’s resignation will bring about a by-election for his seat on the Highland Council.
