East Ayrshire Council last week became a stronger place when the Scottish Conservative and SNP Councillors put their party issues aside to work in the interests of local people.
Many will know ideologically the two parties are apposed with one supporting the United Kingdom with another wanting to separate us. This could have easily of been a barrier to the partnership but no, our politicians worked out how they would work together for the people of East Ayrshire.
It’s most welcomed also that Cllr Jim Todd will be our Provost. I am sure he will a great ambassador for our town and I hope he will work with young people to reengage them into believing in the Council and our Coucnillors.
The first priority of this council must be to review the towns plans for growth and expansion. We need to clean the area up and mobilise our workforce. Only by doing this can we expand the town and attract business
