Why anyone would want to stand for election to Community Councils in Nairn is beyond me!
Unless there is trust and respect shown by elected Highland Council members to the CC'S then it is very difficult to see how they go forward. Over the last couple of years there have been many articles in the Nairnshire Telegraph containing criticism from such members. This seemed to start with an article in the NT dated October 31st where the Area Chair blasted Community Councils for not listening to certain voices in Nairn. The venom has continued ever since. Hopefully Community Empowerment will see the demise of these dinosaurs and we can then look forward to a community led approach to what is best for Nairn as a whole.
