Highland Council Candidate - Thurso Central
John Rosie - Scottish Labour Party

RETURN JOHN ROSIE AGAIN!

It was an honour to be chosen by you to represent the people of this ward on the Highland Council in 1999. It was also an honour to be elected by my colleagues on the council to serve as convenor of the Caithness area committee.

For the past four years, I have worked diligently to uphold and maintain the trust bestowed in me by you and my council colleagues.

I have worked tirelessly to unite the voluntary, public and private sectors in partnership working that is focussed on the needs of the community. We see improvements as a result in our infrastructure, our environment, our economy and our health services.

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.
