A high profile delegation of five Independent Highland Councillors were in the town centre today supporting the two Independent candidates in the forthcoming Council byelection that takes place next week on Thursday May 7th - the same day as the General Election.
Provost Laurie Fraser told the Gurn that he wanted to encourage people to stand as Independent candidates at elections. This Gurn page here lists all the candidates and has links to pages containing the literature that we have received from them so far.
