Con­ser­va­tives choose ward can­di­dates

Stirling Observer - - FRONT PAGE -

Con­ser­va­tives have an­nounced the names of the can­di­dates to fight the Trossachs and Teith ward in the Stir­ling Coun­cil elec­tions in May.

In­cum­bent Martin Earl has been re-se­lected to stand along­side Jeremy McDon­ald, a Doune res­i­dent.

Coun­cil­lor Earl lives in Brig O Turk and has been Trossachs and Teith coun­cil­lor for five years.

He has two chil­dren at McLaren High and one at Stir­ling Univer­sity, and con­tin­ues to run his own busi­ness.

Mr McDon­ald has lived in Doune for 33 years and is a sea­soned cam­paigner in the area. He has a back­ground in re­tail and cus­tomer ser­vice and also does work as a de­signer.

Coun­cil­lor Earl said: “It has been a priv­i­lege to serve this area and should I be elected again in May I will con­tinue to work hard for our in­ter­ests at the coun­cil, be ef­fec­tive and rep­re­sent all our com­mu­ni­ties as ef­fi­ciently as pos­si­ble.

“With two can­di­dates, there is the op­por­tu­nity to dou­ble that hard work­ing rep­re­sen­ta­tion and I look for­ward to work­ing with Jeremy to en­sure we can do that on May 4. “

Mr McDon­ald added: “It is an hon­our and a priv­i­lege to be se­lected to run along­side Martin as a Con­ser­va­tive can­di­date.

“Trossachs and Teith is an amaz­ing area en­com­pass­ing com­mu­ni­ties from Cri­an­larich to Doune and has a wide and var­ied set of chal­lenges.

“I be­lieve Stir­ling Coun­cil needs to pay more at­ten­tion to its ru­ral ar­eas and I would like to join Martin in mak­ing our case to the coun­cil in Stir­ling.”
