If you give me the honour of serving you on the Highland Council for another term, I shall continue to work for partnership between the public, private and voluntary sectors to deliver improvements in key areas such as our air services, Thurso Town Hall and maximise local benefit from Wind Farms and the decommissioning of Dounreay.
