Ross Cassie elected as new SNP councillor for Troup ward

>> Friday, 28 November 2014


The SNP candidate, Ross Cassie, has won the Aberdeenshire Council by-election for Troup ward, with 1159 votes.

The by-election was held following the death of respected Conservative councillor John Duncan earlier this year.

Commenting on the win, newly elected councillor Ross Cassie said:

"It is a great privilege to be elected as the SNP councillor for Troup ward. I am humbled by the support of the communities in Troup and I pledge to repay their trust by working hard for this area over the coming months and years."

"This by-election took place under very sad circumstances after the passing of John Duncan, and I pay tribute to the work he has done for the area."

"There are a number of very significant challenges facing the communities here - not least the regeneration of our towns - but residents can rest assured that I will give nothing less than my absolute best in pursuit of a better future for this area."

SNP MP for Banff & Buchan, Dr Eilidh Whiteford added:

"I am delighted to congratulate Ross on being elected. This was a Conservative-held seat but the people of Troup have placed their faith in the SNP to protect key policies like the Council Tax freeze. I wish Ross all the best in his new role and I am confident that he will deliver for the people who placed their trust in him."
