May I, through your columns, take the opportunity to thank the voters of Hawick and Denholm ward for returning me as one of their three councillors.
I would assure everyone that I will work in close co-operation with my fellow councillors, Alistair Cranston and Stuart Marshall, to ensure that its interests and concerns continue to be properly served and managed. I will also continue to work with the three councillors for Hawick and Hermitage for the good of the whole Hawick area.
We may have problems, but we have a community with the courage to face these problems. By working together we can create a society where there are no exclusions, so let’s go forward together with confidence.
Councillor Zandra Elliot
(Hawick and Denholm ward)
