Rival praises Buchan’s role

Have your say

A TORY councillor who will stand down at the next council elections has been paid a glowing tribute by one of his ward rivals.

The Evening News revealed last month that Fountainbridge/Craiglockhart representative Gordon Buchan has announced he will stand down at the end of the current term.

Councillor Andrew Burns, his Labour rival in the ward said: “He’s been nothing but a pleasure to work alongside, and has been an extremely hard- working local councillor. I do hope the Tories don’t select anyone as effective for 2012.”
