Redman looking for best practice

Cllr Alasdair Redman travelled to Dumbarton today to take part in a joint valuation exercise with Argyll and Bute Council and West Dumbartonshire Council.

From the Chairman

The General Election on 8 June saw the Party here in Scotland generate a fantastic result, building on the resurgence which was clearly evident in the earlier Local Government election.

Thank you

On behalf of all the candidates, and our newly elected group of councillors, Argyll and Bute Conservative and Unionist Association would like to thank all of our members and supporters, who turned out in such great numbers and voted in the local elections last week. 

Good 4 Dunoon

Tomorrow is your chance to choose councillors who will focus on the day to day job of supporting your community not one who will focus on indyref2.

The SNP have said it over and over again a vote for them is a vote for independence........it's all they care about.

Tomorrow the voters of the Kintyre and Islands ward will have an opportunity to elect a new, strong and energetic voice for our local area.
