Local Commitment and Experience

Sitting Councillor Gwyneth Petrie has been selected by local SNP members to stand for re-election, alongside Kate Monahan, who currently works as a Constituency Support Manager for Stuart Donaldson MP, in Ward 14: Huntly, Strathbogie and Howe of Alford.
Kate lives with her large family and has a background in corporate communication, with a Post Graduate Degree in Political Communication.

Gwyneth lives with her partner and young son and has been a Councillor for Huntly, Strathbogie and Howe of Alford since a by-election in 2015. She currently works part-time as an Office Manager for Gillian Martin MSP and has a legal degree and diploma.

Commenting on Kate's selection, Stuart Donaldson, MP for West Aberdeenshire and Kincardine said;

"It is fantastic that Kate has been selected as a candidate for Huntly, Strathbogie and Howe of Alford.

"Since working for me, Kate has been a tireless advocate for vulnerable individuals and families, and she is able to draw on her own considerable professional and personal experience to always try and secure the best outcome for constituents.

"She has worked closely with businesses and communities in an effort to secure better broadband services and boost the tourism potential of the area, and I am certain Kate will be a great representative for the people living throughout ward 14."

Commenting on Gwyneth's re-selection, Alex Salmond, MP for Gordon said:

"As the youngest elected member of Aberdeenshire Council, Gwyneth has brought a different perspective to the Chamber and ensures that the voices of the young people of Aberdeenshire are heard.

"Gwyneth has worked exceptionally hard since her election in 2015 and continues to be a strong advocate for Huntly and the surrounding areas. She has an excellent local knowledge and commitment to the ward and I fully endorse her candidacy."

Kate Monahan added:

"It is an honour to have been selected as one of the SNP candidates for Ward 14. Aberdeenshire is a great place to live and work, and I am proud to call it home.

"Working for the local MP, I have an in-depth understanding of the challenges and opportunities faces by businesses, families and communities throughout the Howe of Alford, and I am keen to stand up for schools, cares services and charities.

"I will work tirelessly to ensure that vital public services are protected and local businesses are supported."

Cllr Gwyneth Petrie said:

"I am delighted to be standing alongside Kate for election. I was born and brought up in Huntly, and Kate has an excellent understanding of the Alford area through her work. Together, we can be a strong and effective team representing the whole of Huntly, Strathbogie and Howe of Alford.

"Since being elected, I have worked with local people and groups to try and resolve a number of issues, including the recent influx of seagulls to Huntly, anti-social driving throughout the ward, and the condition and use of our local halls and community centres.

"It has been a privilege to represent the people of the area, and I very much hope to be re-elected on the 4th May."
