SNP colleagues of Peterhead South & Cruden Independent councillor Tom Malone have commented on his decision to step-down as a councillor from the end of next month owing to ill-health.

Cllr Stuart Pratt, Chair of the Buchan Area Committee and SNP councillor for Peterhead South & Cruden said:

“Tom is passionate about Peterhead and has always wanted the very best for the area. He has a prominent role in the community and we will miss him at area committee. I understand that this must have been a difficult decision for him and wish him good health in the future.”

Fellow Peterhead South & Cruden SNP councillor Stephen Smith said:

“It has been a pleasure to work with Tom as a fellow Ward councillor. I am sorry he has had to take the decision to stand down but fully understand his reasons and wish him well for the future.”

Co-leader of Aberdeenshire Council Cllr Richard Thomson added:

“Cllr Malone has worked hard to support his constituents in Peterhead and has a prominent role in the local community, both through his work as a councillor and his involvement in his church.

“He has played an active role on the Housing and Social Work Committee, where his background as a social worker gave him a useful insight into this area of work. All Tom's colleagues will be saddened to hear of his ill health and we wish him the very best in the future.”

A vacancy will remain in the Peterhead South & Cruden constituency until the local government elections in May.
