Current SNP Councillor for Fraserburgh and District Charles Buchan has announced he will not be seeking re-election in May. Cllr Buchan was previously Head of Physics at Fraserburgh Academy, and had taught there for 44 years before his election to Aberdeenshire Council in 2012. Commenting on his decision to step-down from his council duties, Cllr Charles Buchan said:

"It's been a great honour representing the people of Fraserburgh, Cairnbulg, Inverallochy, Rathen and Memsie for the last ten years. Highlights of my service include the award of conservation area status to the town centre and the resulting inflow of public funds, the results of which are now coming to fruition; the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland choosing Fraserburgh as their northern hub; working with former Fisheries Minister Fergus Ewing MSP to raise the small boat mackerel quota; and my involvement in getting agreement for a new primary school for the town.

"Seamus is an ideal candidate, having much professional experience in health and social care during his time in Northern Ireland. I know he is keen to continue to devote himself to public service in this new role."

Commenting on his selection, Seamus Logan said:

“Charles Buchan has been an excellent representative for his local communities and has done a power of work over the past ten years. I’m delighted to have been selected to stand for election in May.

“My background in health and social services means I know how important it is for large public bodies to be both responsive and accountable to the taxpayer and if elected I will look to ensure that Fraserburgh, Inverallochy, Cairnbulg, Rathen and Memsie get the standard of service from their local authority they deserve.”

Seamus Logan has worked most of his life in the NHS and has over 30 years’ experience as a public servant in the health service, the majority of this at a senior level planning and commissioning all health and social services for large populations. His last position prior to early retirement in 2008 was as Regional Director for Northern Ireland.

A keen golfer, Seamus also serves as Vice-Chair of Fraserburgh Community Council and President-Elect of the local Rotary Club.
