Hamilton Advertiser - - ALL ABOUT LANARKSHIRE - Ste­fanie Mc­court

Hamil­ton South coun­cil­lor Josh Wil­son has been nom­i­nated for an award.

The SNP rep­re­sen­ta­tive has been short­listed in the New Coun­cil­lor of the Year sec­tion of the LGIU (Lo­cal Govern­ment in­for­ma­tion Unit) Scot­land Awards.

And the awards aim “to recog­nise and re­ward those coun­cil­lors who go the ex­tra mile for their con­stituents”.

Coun­cil­lor Wil­son is up against coun­cil­lors Michael Cullen, Glas­gow City Coun­cil; El­iz­a­beth Robert­son, In­ver­clyde Coun­cil, and Ryan Houghton, Aberdeen City Coun­cil.

He said: “It has been an hon­our to rep­re­sent Hamil­ton South over the past year and I am grate­ful to have been short­listed for an award.

“There have been many chal­lenges to over­come, but I am de­lighted with some of our achieve­ments as the new coun­cil ad­min­is­tra­tion. The Hamil­ton Town Cen­tre Strat­egy be­ing im­ple­mented last week is a good ex­am­ple of that.

“Most of all, I have en­joyed sup­port­ing my con­stituents and help­ing them reach so­lu­tions to their prob­lems. I’ll con­tinue to work hard on their be­half and I’m look­ing for­ward to as­sist­ing them in the years to come.”

The cer­e­mony will take place on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 29, at Ed­in­burgh City Cham­bers.
